Capttb-

Just be aware that there have been some reports of non-delivery and quality control issues with the Waterlog watermakers. Also, getting warranty support from them is basically impossible from what I've read on the web. YMMV.

I'd go with a more well established brand, and would recommend you use one that uses off-the-shelf components, rather than proprietary ones...since, if you're long distance cruising in remote parts of the world, the proprietary parts may not be available.

Desalinators. Manual watermakers, yacht desalinators no electrics.

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.
