Re: Drinking water tank water.

Given the size of our boat and our current cruising needs we find that 3-4 1 gallon plastic jugs is plenty of water for the two of us.
They are fairly square in shape and our boat has a locker that will hold 4 jugs really nice with little waisted space. Plus, we still have 30 gallons of good clean water for washing dishes and cleaning up.
Our water system sits unused for pretty much the entire year
so we will shock it before our summer cruising season starts.
I'm just not comfortable drinking out of a 32 year old system that sits unused for most of the time.

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