Greetings,
Mr. NM. "...an ironing board....now that is a waste of space." Not necessarily so. Fish cleaning station immediately comes to mind.

Add some indoor/outdoor green carpet to the iron board and you have the "perfect" fish cleaning station!

We have the 2100XC and does only an OK job of drying. As previously stated, it's a 120 volt unit so figure it will take twice as long for drying as your home unit. We do use the dryer for towels after showering. Both bath towels for 20 minutes in the morning and they're dry with no "wolfy" smell.

Mine comes close -- everything drains into a single 40 gallon sump, which has an automatic pump hooked up to it. When I am in a pristine anchorage, etc., I will often turn off the pump, and "hold" my grey water for a day or two.

We have a 120 Gallon grey water tank with a sealand pump that pumps it overboard. I can either manually do it or put it on auto and as soon, as enough water gets to the ultra switch it pumps it overboard.

Ann loved having the ironing board, but then again we had plenty of space. Guests were always very impressed to find pressed bed linens especially... luxo maxo!

Besides, how else is one to enjoy a proper Christmas breakfast?

The 2100XC is fine for washing and fine for drying light items like underware and tee shirts etc. Heavy items like towels and blankets get hung out to dry on the flybridge (enclosed).

We have a stackable. It works OK and we use it every once in a while. We spent 10 days anchored in the bight of cape look out and arrived at Beafort, NC on a sunday. Wouldnt ya know the only laundry facility would be closed. We plugged into power and water and cranked up the washer and drier. When your on the hook for extended periods of time, you mainly wear swimming suits and dont really need a washer that much. It does use tons of water. I wouldnt use it if trying to conserve water, but at the dock we use the marina's new front loaders. I wouldnt base my descision of which boat to purchase on weather it has a washer and drier. Its a good plus though in a pinch. Also more stuff to break too.

We are live aboards and I went with the stackable Splendide set. The washer and dryer both work very well doing 14 lb loads. The dryer is vented through 4" vent line to the outside and can dry a full load of towels in about 90 minutes or less. The washer has a great spin cycle that really gets the water out of the load.
I had to enlarge the opening as it started as a combo unit. The poorly vented 3" plastic vent line was pathetic. Where it made a turn it literally blocked most of the air flow. When I removed it, the line was almost completely plugged.
The the 4" line on the new system, with the exception of the short metal flex from the back of the dryer to the top of the compartment is all 4" PVC. Easy to clean and allows for great flow. The total run has (2) 90 degree elbos and (2) 45 degree. In the 2 plus years we have had it, I have checked the line to clean it twice and have yet to find any debris in the line.

We had a stacked set of little Maytags. Since we lived aboard full time they got a real workout. Great machines; the dryer was 240, externally vented and made quick work of its tasks. We had to have the washer serviced a couple of times due to owner stupidity, and it was easy to find someone to work on them in obscure places. As I recall, used about 10 gallons, with a quick wash feature using about 7. We were on moorings or at anchor most of the time we were cruising and it was really nice having them.

I would imagine on something like a Fleming there would be a cranny somewhere to place a dryer. Having separate units is really nice when you have a couple of loads to run.

Stacked apartment size units on our boat. Wife prefers them to what we have at home they work so well for small loads. Lot of water required and good venting. Mostly use then dockside. A good dryer is great to have if you run into some wet weather too.


As for boar size buy the biggest you can afford. You wont regret it as they shrink after owning them for a few months,

We have a combo unit off the engine room. The way we use our boat (days on end), time is never an issue so the combo is perfectly adequate, and actually more convenient since there is no need to move a damp load from the washer to the dryer. But speaking of dryers, we have a dryer only in our MSR, which we use regularly to dry bath towels. Its kind of a treat to have a crisp, warm dry towel after showering on a cold morning.

Greetings,
Mr. b. "...boar size...they shrink...."?? Never know ANY boar that I owned to actually shrink. Maybe it's the Oreo cookie diet. Any tips? Bigger chesterfield maybe?

We have the original stacked units that came with our 1985 kk42. Can't remember the make. They still work ok for now. Like Larry, when it's damp out, we use the dryer to dry towels after the shower. We arrange to do some loads when a) the genny is on for the charge cycle, and b) just before we fill the water tanks. We have a wooden drying rack that we store folded up under the helm when not in use. We set it up in the Pilothouse on sunny days and clothes dry very quickly. In the fall/winter everything is about moisture management and we don't use the rack unless the weather is right for that purpose.

Two boats ago my 1989 Californian 45 had a Kenmore stacker wired to 220. It worked just like it would in a house. Great.

One boat ago my 42' Nordic Tug had a Splendide vented model wired to 110. Did not work at all in my wife's opinion. We took it out and installed a deep freeze in the space. Then she started complaining about having to take the laundry off the boat. Go figger??
