My point: Having a watermaker certainly takes the safety consideration of the local drinking water out of the cruising equation.

What's your point? Are you cheerleading the purity of Mexican tap water
and denouncing Mexican lettuce?

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

My point was simply that the statement that a water maker is a "must have" for "solving" the problem of acquiring diarrhea parasites is a stretch, if not just inaccurate.

You drew a direct connection between water and disease in a particular case, and I was questioning whether you could draw that connection as fact.

One should not be led to believe that they are safe from certain diseases just by owning a water maker.
