SailorMitch will become famous soon enough
Caliber 40LRC? Also check out Nauticats and some of the other motor-sailors to get the view you want. Or perhaps a Winnebago would be a better choice.

Get stale anyhow. There are some decent little solar powered watermakers around these days.
Which solar-powered watermaker are you looking at???

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.

by "solar powered" I mean real small and 12 vdc, of course. Have been looking at SeaQuencher SQ200,and lately the PUR Powersurvivor 40E, although its a little lite on the production side, I can survive on 1.5 gph. for a $ 3000. lightweight RO system.

There are a few others out there as well. Spectra Ventura 150 looks good. Its boiling down to a matter of whether I want long showers or just to be able to top up tank while running engine, or during the day while solar active. Do I really NEED 6 gallons an hour? I think a good 2-3 gallons an hour might do it. Keep me topped up between rain fills, or marinas, and enough to survive if the watertank were ruptured, or contaminated, etc.
Input greatly appreciated.

Canibul-

You might be better off with a slightly larger watermaker than a smaller one, as it allows you to make more water in the same amount of time. This is particularly true if you're going to be using the engine to provide the electricity to make the water.

well, I am hoping to be able to use solar. We have direct sun here almost every day, for 12-14 hours. I am at about 21 deg. North.

Look at the Hunter 37-cutter. It only has 100 gallons of water and 50 gallons of diesel but it does have a separate shower. Google 'hunter cutter' or 'Windflower'.
