Sew a gutter into your bimini. Put a down spout made out of cloth. Our friends on their Panda did that and said it was very effective. As mentioned earlier, you will want to dump the first few gallons for dirt, salt, and bird poop. We actually always got more dirt than bird poop anyways. I would also consider having at least a handheld water maker for drinking water. I think our friends used their water catcher for showering, etc. I do not think they drank it. If you put bleach in there you probably could, I guess.

Keep us posted on your progress and travels. Your tales and experiences can help a lot of people out here. Are you going alone or with kids? Where do you plan to cruise? Where have you cruised? What type of boat? What has worked and what has not?

We would all love to hear from you and your husband. Stick around!!
