I had to take the floor out to remove the engine. It is not an easy job given the electrics and hydraulic lines.

My original comment related to going through the port side locker. I am not familiar with the Brewer port locker layout but if it is like the Whitby then you can remove the locker floor to provide access into the engine room. Then again I do not have a genset beside the engine under the locker floor.

I am pretty sure that the locker on the port side of both is the same. Even removing the lid, I would never be able to fit something as large as a 24" deep washing machine. The floor of my locker also comes out, but I have a genset below mine, and the compressors for my Seafrost refrigeration are on the shelf on the outboard of that.

I do appreciate the thoughts, but unfortunately there isnt much of a chance of getting anything down through the locker, or the time consuming process of removing the cockpit sole.

I just can't see getting a Splendide machine below decks short of a major operation. I will probably end up with a Giantex washer/centrifugal dryer. Not perfect, but good enough for long term cruising.
