I was thinking of the metal, not paper coffee filters. But window screen would be a good idea too.

BTW, large bugs and leaves are generally not a problem, as most of the boats using these systems are generally in areas without either... leaves and large bugs are rather rare on the open water.

Of course, if you're using the rain catching system closer to land, and want to depend on it...get one of these:


and put it in the hose leading from the catchment system.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
