I am surprised more mention isnt made for collecting rainwater, most all the long range cruisers and circumnavigators routinely do it, just putting into use all those awnings you see them with. Depending on size of the boat a 20 min squall can give 50 gallons of water. Check out Steve Dashews The Circumnavigators Handbook.
If you're going to do much off coast cruising you'll need awnings or comparable, put them to work also as rain collectors.
