Hi everyone. I'm sailing over to the Exumas in a couple weeks and wondering about fresh water supplies in Georgetown. Should I carry 5 gallon jugs or weigh anchor and go to a dock in town? Are there many fresh water facilities in Georgetown? Also, would I need something like a Ubiquiti Bullet to get WiFi on my boat?
Thanks in advance!

Re: fresh water supply
5 gallon jugs are your best bet. Free RO water at the dink dock. Your best bet for wifi is a local cell phone. The Bullet is good but fewer and fewer folks in the Bahamas rely on picking up wifi signals with antennas. I gave up on mine a few years ago.
I do recall a short hose at the dink dock for all to use.
I would also suggest the acquiring of a water tester, parts per ------.
The spicket along the road in Black Point had well over 200 ppm. I do not recall Georgetown's numbers. But do not recall my wife and I becoming ill.
