Dower says she was immediately taken by the idea of helping Hawaiian Chieftain after learning that the ship was built in Maui, which she says is "one of my favorite places" and the inspiration for her business' name. She made a couple of calls to suppliers and found a good refurbished Frigidaire washer with the same footprint as the Hawaiian Chieftain's broken washer. It was delivered to the boat, and brought aboard Sunday morning, with the cameras of Good Day Sacramento looking on. In the screenshot from the television report, Capt. JB Morrison (foreground in the hat) supervises bringing aboard Hawaiian Chieftain a newly donated washing machine.
Thanks so much to Paradise Laundry and Good Day Sacramento for their generosity and help!
