Re: Family sailing report with photos and embedded questions

honestly I would never drink from a potable water system on a boat/rv. A municipal water supply is a sealed, pressurized system that's always moving. A boat/RV tank gets filled from a garden hose, then used sporaically, setting unused for long periods of time. That's just way too much opportunity for bacteria to grow.

Way I see it, it's similar to opening a bottle of water, taking a sip, then putting the cap on halfway, and leaving it in the corner of a room for a few weeks.
