Printers for Onboard Use
<HTML><!-- eWebEditPro -->How will&nbsp;a standard laser printer stand-up on a cruising boat on such issues as moisture in the heating elements, the toner cartridge, etc.? Would an ink jet be better?<P>Ken Wilhoite</P><P><STRONG>Jim Sexton responds:</STRONG></P><P>If you already own a laser printer, by all means use it. I haven't heard of any problems associated with using the laser printer on board. I use an HP LaserJet 6L and am very happy with it.</P><P></P><P>If you don't own a laser printer, then I would recommend that you buy a bubble jet. Most cruisers use a bubble jet because of the low initial cost, low operating expense, and small footprint. Specifically, I recommend the Canon BJC series of printers. The latest one is the 4400 with the optional scanner cartridge. Other Cannon BJC models can be purchased for less than $200. A reconditioned Canon BJC costs about $100. At that price you can afford to get a new one every year. The great thing about these printers is that you can pick up a new cartridge almost anywhere in the US.</P></HTML>
