Re: How Expensive is the Virgin Islands to Live on Board ?

Zanshin,

I'm glad you told me that (above) and gives me a better perspective. I just did a top to bottom search on Ebay. I found water makers at differnt price levels. I see them at the -- 4 & 6 and 10 GPM water makers cap. (12 V & 115 V.) from
$ 2.5 to $ 4.5 K and brand new with warranty. I found some higher ended units that are used or open box but about the same price.

I asked, earlier, what is the taste like ? I'd guess, the quaility of water may be.... cleaner & more healthful as compared to.. sea port type water. I will move the water maker up to a higher priority. i know now that it will be worth the money & the independence from having to get it all the time. I will smile everyday that I have one on board (good safe water).

One last question, are most of the water makers the types that use - reverse osmosis or what ? I like reverse osmosis water and use it here at my home.
