With two people we need to do two loads a day to keep up.

Guess were primitives , in two WEEKS we fill a sail bag spend a few quarters in a laundromat and in 2 hoyrs are done.

28 machine loads in two weeks (2x a day x 14 days) does sound like a unique lifestyle!

The washer on a boat is really small.

Some days we might only need one load, but when you figure towels for us, and the dogs, clothes, etc... it does add up.

I have a non vented splendid washer/dryer. The dry cycle is about an hour.
When you pull the clothes out they feel a little damp, but warm. Laying them out for an hour or so finishes the drying process.

Not as good as at home but a heck of allot better than lugging clothes to a laundry mat.

The way you use your boat, I see no reason to be set up any other way.

Now, last night I was talking to an old and long time friend who, for over 20 years, has spent May to October on the North Coast in their 42 Canoe Cove. This is the first year they considered a water maker, due to lack of supply.

I copied your install, sent it to him and learned it is the unit they considered. Now the Canadian dollar makes it a real challenge.

To the point, would you mind if I introduced him to you via a PM?
