Next job, how to destroy a bathroom in an afternoon

Well I had my last shower yesterday – no I’m not on death row, I mean in this thing.
This is how it looked at the time…

Note the hi tech body jets that can’t be used because they’re powerful enough to blow a person out of the shower basin itself. Whilst at the same time getting (a person) all neatly packaged and wrapped up in the shower curtain.
 
Then there’s the base itself, see that figure of 8 effect? Well it’s just great for stubbing your toe on, regularly.
 
Then there’s the fancy looking glass panel which allows water to come flowing smoothly through the open side while the glass stays dry as a bone. So a shower curtain was an addition Dave had to make yonks ago. But first of all it required a curtain rail with lots of bendy bits to prevent the bathroom turning into a wet room. It didn’t need body jets working to do that, just the shower was enough…
 
Something that looks great isn’t necessarily practical, in this case the same would apply to a boat or a house! And as you’ve (hopefully) realised, it was installed on the boat before we were.
This is how it looks at the moment, with tiles knocked off on both sides, what an improvement…

Anybody want a new shower? Body jets included, (hardly ever used) and good luck with it…

Blimey it’s NOISY in here…

In his haste to get started Dave began knocking off the tiles with bare hands and cut two of his fingers off quite badly. After plasters were applied by nurse Heth, he wore his big fat gloves and complimentary plastic glasses in order to carry on. Lesson learned, even though he knew it all before he set off, but was being lazy.
 
Uh Oh, the base is on its side and I just heard dripping water followed by Dave’s trademark “Oh bugger.”
 
He´s just carried half a wall outside...
 
To be continued…
