How can I run my shower without electric or the engine please

I have purchased a houseboat which has no engine and no coal burner, can anyone help me to find a way to run a shower as the electrics on the bank are only 16 amp and I believe I would need 32 amps. I am also on a tight budget. Thank you in advance

Diesel additive

We get our new boat delivered in few days and I'll need to fill up with diesel for the first time. Should I use a fuel additive from the start, and on a regular basis, to inhibit the diesel bug and help precipitate any moisture? I'm having a Fuel Guard filter system fitted for added protection.
Thank you

Exhaust lagging

I would like to ask if it would be a good idea for me to lag the hospital silencer in my engine bay? If so are there alternatives to the lagging that is mostly sold for exhausts as it appears to be quite narrow and would take a lot and is expensive. I was wondering about domestic regular hot water lagging?

Repainting a water tank

Is there any rust preventive treatment that can be used on existing rust patches in a potable water tank before repainting ? Rylard Paints seem to be the only supplier of bitumen water tank paint.
