These days, our off shore cruising is generally fourteen days or less, and our fresh water tanks
are perfectly good for two or three weeks or so, however, once every couple of years or so we cross the pond in what I would describe as being a none stop but generally leisurely fashion
to go back home and being badly delayed by weather
last year and running lowish on fresh water
, I began to wonder if I should add a "Water Maker" to my inventory of all those things that beat the hell out of my batteries
. The information available on the Web is mixed, they are regarded as either being better than sliced bread or, because of the routine and regular maintenance
required, worse than ants at a picnic.
It's not like I actually Need
one, I'm looking at it as more of a "Like To Have" sort of thing and I'm wondering what experiences the folks on this forum might have with these things.
Love 'em or Hate 'em?
