Washing Machines: Complexity and Space Considerations


One of our members recently expressed surprise (in a comment) that we don't have a washing machine on Morgan's Cloud, particularly given that she is 55' overall and so would seem to have plenty of room for one—a logical question and assumption.

And yet Phyllis and I have never even considered installing a washing machine. Here's why:

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for 25 years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 20 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
