RE: washer / dryer

For short cruises a couple of days, if you hit the dock on a regular bases or a live a board its a Luxury.* We have a washer and drier but have used if very seldom in the 14+ years owning the boat and 12+ years of being a live a board.* The washer uses a lot of water and the drier uses a lot of AC electricity.* Both are limited resources on a boat, even with 400 gallons of water and 2 gen sets.*Once a week I do the laundry while doing the grocery shopping, filling the water tanks*and other errands.* If the washer and/or drier quite, I*would not replace them.**
