Re: Bombay Clipper 31
Well it depends..... Water we could go a long time but we used a lot of salt water for most things and rinsed with just a little of the precious fresh water. You can put a few 5 gallon water jugs on the lifelines. I used to store two 5 gallon water jugs down in the giant lazerette in case we ran out.
You can do the same with fuel. Originally my boat had a 15hp Yanmar that sipped between a 1/4 and 1/3 gallon per hour. I was a sailor and sailed a lot of the time. I filled the tank up once a year, whether it needed it or not!!! Just before selling Far Cry I installed a 20hp Yanmar and fuel burn would have gone up proportionally to match increased horsepower. I had solar so never needed to run the engine to charge batteries. If you are set up similarly I would suspect you would need water much more often then you needed fuel. 6 miles is just an hour each way under power. Plan accordingly and I wouldn't think you'd have a problem. If tankage were an issue there is a lot of space that could be utilized for the installation of bladder tanks. You could always get creative with awnings to be used for rain collection too.
