I similarly can't understand the folks that can cruise with a low output water maker having to conserve water, turn the shower
off during lathering up and don't wash their boat
down with fresh water while at anchor
. Ok...I'm exaggerating a bit to make a point. But I cruised with two kids
for 5yrs and then lived aboard as a family
of 4 for another 5yrs....and we used water not like we were camping so we "needed" the larger output.
But what is absolutely TRUE is that both systems work
well for people that buy the right unit for their cruising lifestyle.
