#3 Gondola Bath by Steersman
When I saw the images, I immediately thought - Gondola (see image below)
The attached sketch is the idea that stemmed from this. The shape is designed to give the impression of the Venetian gondola, but with the compromise that it must be practical for both bathing, and cleaning.
The design also includes two upright wooden supports to simulate the mooring piles, that a gondola would be tied up to when not in use. The attachments can be a rope or a metal ring.
Also to note, in my sketch I have just shown the bath attached to the 'piles' at the top, but this will cause the bath to swing when the user is climbing in and out.
If this is not acceptable, then we can add in an extra attachement point at the bottom.
I hope you like it, I would certainly enjoy the challenge of creating it. I have designed a boat hull some years ago so I am familiar with the technique of creating such a shape successfully
If you would like me to create this as a 3D CAD model, the charge will be £240.00
I can also get the prototype built here in the UK, but i am aware that this might prove an expensive option because of the transportation costs to the USA.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards

Hi Jim

No problem.

I can do a similar design to the one shown in the photos, and the charge will be the same as I quoted before - £240.00

I hope this helps

Best regards

Hi Rob,

Many thanks for your design idea. I'm looking to go down a similar design aesthetic to the photographs in the PDF rather than a gondola style design.

Kind regards,
