Watermakers, Oh my… News

This post goes under provisioning and long term planning.

We do not plan on getting a watermaker for this boat as the cost of a good one would be over 100% of what we paid for the boat itself.   For the next few years we plan to just use a bunch of gallon jugs and the on board tank.  Annoying at times, but since we are not intending to take the Clew out for more than a few days at a time we can make the arrangement work.

Here is a LINK for a watermaker.

Our next boat will be a 32 to 38 (who knows, we may want a 42 when the time comes).  We intend to do longer passages and travel to Europe and the South Pacific so a watermaker is on the radar in about 8 or 9 years.

Here is an interesting article on a new breakthrough in watermaker tech.   

Invest in Lockhead if this works out.   It has applications in more fields than boat alone.   It is good news all around.

  1. We didn’t have a watermaker on our first boat, but we do on this one. We also didn’t have a dog the first time around, and we do now. Let’s just say, keeping sand off the boat and off the dog takes a lot of water. I used the dog for an excuse to get a watermaker, but I love having one.
