Round sinks. Why?!

I see a possibility, as 2 would be normally required

Ahhhh - I thought it was to retain the original (now wireless on one side) with the addition of another 'cup'. I did not appreciate it was a full replacement option.

I see a possibility, as 2 would be normally required the long ends could be tied together, to sort of meet behind the head and a parasol attached. 

It would hark back to the days of Victorian elegance and be practical at the same time

you know what - I think you're onto something.   I'm looking forward to a cartoon style sketch that may be useful for making a pitch on Dragons' Den one day soon.

I fitted a circular sink in ‘Gilgie’ because Gilly did not want either soulless stainless or white ceramic. I spotted some large earthenware flower pots when shopping for the beech countertops in Ikea, so bought one to convert into a sink.

Flobalob - the noise of a fart in the bath, according to Freda Lingstrom talking on R4.

Evidently a man of impeccable taste (as doubtless your ‘rather a delectable girlfriend’ would agree).

You've spoken to her I see...

Assuming that a round sink has the same or similar diameter as the across flats size of a square sink, it will use less water from your tank to achieve a given depth of water.

No-one has actually answered the OP's question yet, which is why do people buy round sinks for narrow boats.

 

To be qualified to answer, you must have chosen and purchased a round sink for your narrow boat. Any such people reading this, please explain your reasoning! Everyone else is just pontificating. 

 

I am such a person, and my reason is as I stated earlier in the thread. I wanted the cheapest sink and drainer I could possibly find that would do the job, and round ones were less half the price of anything rectangular.

Unusually sloppy for you MtB.

 

No-one has actually answered . . . why . . .”.  Yet you go on to say: “my reason is as I stated earlier . . .” You are therefore nobody?

 

Plus, I gave a reason also: “I fitted a circular sink in ‘Gilgie’ because . . .No pontificating.

Last boat fitted a round'un (small boat, tiny tank, less water used for given depth  in sink.)
Current boat has square sink (bigger boat, much bigger tank, square sinks were silly cheap on offer in B&Q at the time of fitting out.) 
Will that do? :)

I installed a Shaws Round Ceramic Sink in the gallery. Two main reasons first: ceramic holds the heat longer and looks upmarket which it should do at £300. (Brought new on Ebay £35). Second reason you can install the taps where you like and not look out of place unless you install them at the front.

I've got an oval sink which was more expensive than a round or square one, does this make me some kind of extrovert?
