Re: Drinking water tank water.

Even municipal water systems kill people.
Why would anyone even chance it. Without bottled water, using your water tank as your only source of water is risky at best.
I can just imagine what it would be like to have 4-5 people on board, 3 days out, and you all have violent diarrhia with no water to drink.
Now there is some good planning.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
