Most marinas are quite good about allowing you to fill up with water even if you don't buy a lot of fuel. I've noticed some in the Chesapeake have a minimum dollar amount for fuel or they charge you $5 or $10 for a fill of water. But again, I've never had a problem with getting water on US east coast. Some places, like Crandon Park on Key Biscayne, even have a separate spot where you can fill jugs. I would not buy a watermaker for the type of cruising I do (six months each year during the winter). Many of my friends do have them but they also have diesel generators. With watermakers comes more power consumption and a fair amount of maintenance. Of course, those that have them love them.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
