Watermakers - Both 12vdc and Manual Operation

Does anyone have feedback/experience about a marine watermaker that will run on 12V and can also be used manually? It needs to be lightweight, small and produce enough water onboard for 4 people.

I think you're going to have difficulties finding a manual watermaker to make enough water for four people. someone would have to be pumping it all day to make that kind of water.

The 40E has an Output of 1.50 gal/h (± 15%), using about 4A @ 12VDC, or about 1.6 gal/h in manual operation @ 30 pump strokes per minute.
Not a lot, but sufficient for 4 people at an operating time of about 4 to 5 hours (power).
