There's actually quite a lot of places to get water and it's hardly what I'd call expensive. Often 15 cents a gallon. My wife and I spent $25 our last trip on water.
Only place we've ever had trouble getting water was Soper's Hole. I believe Great Harbour on JVD may have water now. Otherwise once you go east of Soper's on the South side of Tortola, there's a lot of options.
Nanny Cay, Road Town, (maybe Peter Island?), Hodges Creek, Marina Cay, Scrub Island, Spanish Town (VG) and a number of places in the North Sound on VG.
It is still good to conserve when possible and know what your supply is. If you have 2 tanks
this is easier, 1 tank just try to keep an eye on it.
And as far as dinghy
theft is concerned, I haven't seen or heard of this being a problem with charterers. Heard of a few private dinghy's being stolen, but that's it. CGB is the only place I've really seen much mention of being sure it's locked, so our last trip (6th one) we decided to visit CGB which we hadn't done yet, so we got the cable and lock (moorings/sunsail can provide this, so I'm not sure why footloose wouldn't). We locked it in CGB and Cruz Bay on St. John. I think that was it. It certainly wouldn't hurt to lock it in other locations if you'll be away from it for a while though and have the means to do so.
