Good compact printer/scanner for a boat?

I was resisting getting one but as we spend more time on the boat, seems we indeed will need to print and/or scan occasionally.
We donít really need color, I just want something very compact. Does anyone have a recommendation?

I have one of these I keep in the motorhome for the occasion printing job. To scan I use their phone app, take a picture of the document and it prints it. Works pretty well and very compact. And being a laser printer there are no clogging nozzles.

You might want to check out the Epson Workforce products. Good scanners, good paper handling, good printing. Even photo printing is pretty good if you use the right paper and settings.

We have an HP Officejet 250 that I've been very surprised with (horrid experiences with "all-things-HP" in the past). It has held up well over 3 years of liveaboard use and the cartridges have never dried out enough not to work, even after months in the locker cabinet. VERY small to store. Prints and scans. Easy wifi connection and a rechargeable battery so we don't have to plug it in every time we use it.
