Re: 1 gallon per hour water maker

"will probably get a water specialist to give me their thoughts as I know some of the worlds best" Me too. Look into Spectras 150 Ocean rowing unit. It's about the only thing that makes sense. Making your own, seen it done a few times did it myself many times. I promise you, the time spent getting a DIY one to work, especially under your parameters, is better spent working at McDonalds at far less hours earning enough money to just buy a new and proven system.

Re: 1 gallon per hour water maker


I assume you know of Mark Rutherford, the guy who sailed around the Americas singlehanded on a small boat. I believe he had a manual water maker.

He may have some insights for you.

Good luck.
