This is the only problem you have with the boat? Buy it
I've owned three boats with vented Splendide's over the years. I think they all had handle cracks. No handle fell off entirely. The real problem is that none of them were much use because it takes two hours to dry very few clothes. At anchor
, that's a lot of genset time. At a marina, it's easier to walk up the dock
to a real washer/dryer and have a drink at the bar.
