Kenny-

While a watermaker might be a nice addition, you should probably set the boat up so that you have enough water for the trip regardless of the watermaker, since if it fails, and you don't have enough aboard, bad things will happen. Watermakers aren't reliable enough IMHO to be depended on...and are a luxury.

That said, it would be nice to have one, if you can afford the electrical/engine power it will require to use.

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.
