Re: Washing clothes on a boat
I too notice that you are using the forum to promote your video blog business. I don't care pretty much one way or the other about that. I notice that you use sexual inuendo to draw people in. "Going Topless" and "Talking Dirty" are designed to get men to click on your site. Perhaps that works (I don't know), but it seems pretty manipulative. I do wish you well in your travels and in your video efforts. I have two comments about the video:
I notice you are using your clothes washer in the harbor, with the discharge of dirty water going into the harbor water. This is a pretty big error. Harbor water is dirty enough. If you're going to wash cloths at the harbor, you should walk it to a land based machine like the rest of us do, so that the water can be treated. If your thought was just to demonstrate the product, then demonstrate the use of it properly, and in an appropriate location.
A bucket can be used for so many things, including washing clothes. A single use item like the washer you are showing takes up storage space. A washboard and bucket might be a better idea. Or a plunger. On a fishing boat I crewed on once, we rigged a plunger to a small electric motor and washed our clothes in a bucket. Very luxurious.
