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