Another day. Another system check. After a week on the boat it was time. This, by the way, is the first time I think I have ever done laundry so I’m a bit nervous. Does a boat need a washer/dryer?. For us, it would have been a total luxury. While in Mexico we typically would reprovision in a marina every couple weeks and almost every marina had a laundry service. Cheap and easy despite sometimes having to carry a large load to the laundromat. Unlike a watermaker, which to me is an absolute necessity, a washer dryer is a luxury. You can use a bucket if you can’t find a laundromat. But it is nice to have a luxury now and then. It fit perfectly in the hallway between the two guest bedrooms. It is a Splendide combination washer dryer and is very quiet. The cycle is not yet done so I don’t know how the dryer will work, but it is a vented dryer. Some aren’t and apparently don’t really dry.
