There is a pretty good looking laundry shop near the anchorage. $12.50 for all the washing. A bit expensive but worth it for clean clothes. There is a great attendant on site and the machines are large. The jumbo loader has all the towels that are aboard the boat. After all the rain they really need a good washing. Drying is $0.25 for 6 minutes.
It’s a bit of a hassel to load the dinghy with so much laundry but much easier than washing in the basin. The powdered soap we have aboard doesn’t suds up in the brackish water anyways. Clean clothes and bedding for the birthday boy. A shower is in order as well.
We have 2 water tanks under the floor in the salon. Total, we have between 60-80 gallons of space. The tanks look pretty clean on the inside when we peeked with the flash light. A good bleaching won’t hurt though. For now, we will use the tanks to flush the potty and as rinse water. We are debating if it would be safe enough to run the tank water through a Brita filter for drinking purposes. We are concerned about chemicals as we have bug bombed several times.
