How large are your tanks
and what brand did you choose? And how long have you been cruising with them (any failures)?
Watermakers are one of those areas where there is no such thing as one size fits all or ones needs are the same as another, even if they are in the same type boat cruising the same areas. This is where searching out and locating good expert advice is important. It really does take time to sit down with each individual person and find out what their needs, desires, requirements, and their boats capabilities are before recommending a watermaker
that would best suit their lifestyle. As you know watermakers are not cheap
, but you can certainly spend too little and certainly spend too much. You can as easily under-size a watermaker
for your boat just as surely you can easily over size one.
My father used to say "An educated customer now, will always be your best customer in the future". So we hold an all day class in Fort Lauderdale
for just that reason. This year it is coming up fast on July 16th a Saturday. No charge, food
and drinks included. We will be covering in depth
watermaker issues, repairs
, servicing, and help to narrow down and define what may or may not suit you best. You will go away with a lot to think about if a watermaker is something that might be in your future. If this interests anyone, we have a few seats left and would love to see any CF members there. Just shoot me PM or give me a call if you'd like to get on the list.
