Re: Drinking water on a 22ft boat

And I think all this time I have been focusing on storms and reefs, being run over by ships and leaking garboards. The real enemy is laying on the dock.

Water makers are energy hogs. That is what makes them expensive to operate. A big boat with a generator or a large alternator can make large quantities of water. A small boat has a problem. When you see something like a Power Survivor 40 look at the output vs power consumed. It makes a gallon and a half an hour.

For anywhere populated you can get water much cheaper than making it.
Well there is my point exactly, I donít want a gallon and a half an hour I want a gallon a day!

Following from my previous post: if round stainless kegs are good, square ones will be even better. Probably soon to be a new and amazing concept from some over-priced designer.
