Re: Bug out boat

It is surprising that many of the "prepers" and "survivalist" have not consider a sailboat as a very adequate survival tool "bug out". To be really self sustained, you have to be energy independent as well as to have the ability to make water. Solar and wind are the answers. By the way, if you are considering a typical marine water maker, think again. There are some excellent "atmospheric" water makers on the market that you can convert to solar. All you need is the space and 45% humidity, which as long as you do not intend to cruise the Sahara, is easy to have and a connection to your solar/wind power. A 10 gallons a day water maker will cost you about $850.00. Don't forget your fishing gear, a good compass and learn to use a sextant. Be friendly to the natives, bring American cigarettes as they are the best currency.
