Re: Musings of a Live Aboard

reminds me of the guy who visited the Mariah one day. Real friendly and curious, invited himself right on board Capt. Derick was cordial enough,got his name etc and showed up at his place a few days later.Made himself right at home, feet up on the coffee table and all. The now not so friendly guy takes offense and makes to phone the authorities. Derick explained the situation and left.Education takes many forms, all are beneficial.

One of my friend's father owns a 42 ft Catalina with a washing machine. It is like one of the European combo models that sorta-washes your clothes and when the water drains, it sorta-dries them. It does, however, do a very good job at getting all your clothes very wrinkly.

Yes. Click on my website in my sig below then click on projects, Caliber 40, winter cover.

Once upon a time, Catalina sold a MkII47 with a washer/dryer in the forepeak... Maybe they can tell you more about how it works, what it consumes (and what current models they may still fit in...)

Re: Musings of a Live Aboard

Gee, what do you do all day while just sitting around.

Come visit the boat and find out. Bring clothes you don't like, your own water and gloves.

By early spring I'm ready to quit polishing and waxing and start cutting grass, by fall I'm so tired of all the other projects that a falling leaf and pending haul out doesn't seem so bad.
There are times when having your boat 30 seconds away at your own dock is not a good thing. It's too close for time off.
