Dishwasher

I'm planning on purchasing an 18" wide dishwasher for my Carver 4207. Anyone have any recommendations? Brands / models to avoid?

Your post does not indicate your area of the world so it would be difficult to make any recommendation. If USA can't help.

Cheers

Re: Dishwasher

Might want to check your area as food waste in many areas is not to be discharged into the water. So basically you have to wipe clean before you can wash them. Also storage on most boats is more useful than a dish washer. We use paper and plastic plates so we have one small sink each week. Anyway check with your marina.

I would instal a garbage compactor before a dish washer.

Re: Dishwasher

Dishwashers are a must for me. Garbage compactors just smell and reek.

I'm sorry that this is off topic.

So you can't discharge food waste in the water, but using paper and plastic plates is fine? How nuts is that?

Actually, I intend to replace the trash compactor with the dishwasher.

@a64pikot You keep asking us, I really think your wife is the only valid source of info on the question :-) Why not ask her and report back?

Re: Dishwasher

Since my initial reaction was "A dishwasher? On a boat? SERIOUSLY??" I like the turn the thread has taken.

My wife would agree wholeheartedly that she's better at dishes and laundry...and I'm WAY better at head maintenance, hull scrubbing, electrical work, engine repairs, etc. The good news is we're equally good at painting, sanding, navigating/steering, sheet pulling, drink mixing and beer drinking....thus all is equalized in the end.

On the subject of redheads...now I know why the world changes when she uses "Hot tamale" hair dye!

Re: Dishwasher

My (new to me) boat came with a dishwasher. I can see a potential advantage to having a dishwasher in that it might use less fresh water than some people would washing a full set of dishes by hand. On the other hand, in order to run the dishwasher I have to run the genset for an hour and a half. In that same time with the genset going, my water maker would make 60 gallons of water -- certainly more than anyone would use washing a set of dishes. I guess this is a round-a-bout way of saying I don't see a lot of sense in a dishwasher on board, but I have one. Perhaps someday I'll swap it out and put a trash (not garbage!) compactor in its place. That would be very useful.

As far as brands, mine is a fisher-paykel. It is ok. My wife had a fisher-paykel in her former house and hated it because it was always breaking down. Given one neutral and one negative between the two of us, that is a mild thumbs down.

Re: Dishwasher

I used one like this at my lodging in collage. consider using a recirc pump, strainer and a small amount of soapy water. Rinse later with care.

Re: Dishwasher

Fountaine-Pajot installed a Bosch in our new Saba 50. Boat being customized here in the U.S., so have not been able to use it......we will see if it was a worthwhile addition or not. I was vetoed on the washer/dryer.
