|Anyone out there have photos of their Mastercraft V-drive shower placement? |
I have an X-30 and am looking for recommendations on shower motor and knobs placement. The best location I see is on top of the hard ballast tanks in the rear compartments. Of course, I am concerned about the obvious danger of putting a hole in the tanks with any screw placement. Inside the rear compartment the back wall is pretty flimsy for holding the shower motor/pump but would be OK for the knobs except that down there would be very difficult to get to for adjusting the temp.
Anyone with recommendations would be appreciated.

|Mount it on the rear transom. I've always had mine in the middle, mounted to the metal air intake cover. Easy to adjust, easy to use, and the boat stays dry.|
|Thanks Whit that looks like a great place for the shower. |
|Here are some images from the back of my 2003 X2. |
Is that the shower head on the right side panel?
Excellent pics, thanks.
|Larry/Whit, where is your shower pump mounted? |
|KC yes that is the quick disconnect for the shower head itself, my pump is mounted underneath the rear seat storage area.|
|Here is mine no quick disconnect the hose feeds through the pump is in the rear of the right storage compartment. You might have to modify the bracket. |
|The shower set-ups on MCs are the slickest I've seen, by far. I wish my boat had an indentation for a similar mounting arrangement.}|
|02 x-star. I have posted pic last year, but can't find them at the moment. I mounted my shower in the rear of my trunk. Put the pump on the BACK side of the panel that covers the ballast pump and mounted the shower valve through the panel. I'll try to find some pics. |
In my old bayliner, I put a barb in the manifold and a short hose to a shutoff valve. Just open the valve and fill up a rubber maid container. Mix with lake water if it gets hot. Nice for soaking the feat and hands. $5.00
|Well I checked on my 02 X30 and the area in the stern where the vent tubes are doesn't look like it could hold the plate for the hot/cold shower knobs. The MC boats (probably 03's or 04's) shown on this thread have an awsome location for the shower install but my 02 does not. Anyone out there with an 02 MC Vdrive that have a factory install of the shower? Enlightenment needed. |
My boat is a 02 X-star It had a solid plate covering that area but your dealer should be able to get you the cutout plate that opens that area up or you may just be able to cut a hole in the plate that is there now.
|John, on my 02 X30 the transom is round from left to right. There is no plate or cut out section. |
