survival hand operated water-makers leave a residue salt content between 2.6% and 4.8% this is apparently exceptable.

For water
Use your sail or Bimini top to catch rain...
Use a solar still to make water
use those Survivor water makers that are out on the market. A good way to have water on hand.
sail the Great lakes... and it would be: Water, water everywhere and many a drop to drink. Okay so I skewed that line from the Ancient Mariner. But you may want a carbon filter for the G.L. waters.

Has anyone ever seen the inside of a municipal water line that's been in use even only 5 or 10 years? If you haven't, you don't want too. Very, very nasty. Then there's the reality that all but very few municipalities have probably at least 25% of their delivery systems 40 to 50 years old. Most of the water delivered runs through the older bigger stuff at some point on it's way.
I would drink what rolls off my sails anyday before drinking any municipal water supply.

Seriously, I've been told that the bowels are capable of absorbing fresh water while rejecting salt, and that salt water enemas can contribute a large amount of fresh water by allowing the bowels to absorb it.

Something to add to that real short list of "Fun New Things To Do While Stuck on Desert Island", in case you are also the Entertainment & Morale Officer aboard your vessel.

HS-

I really don't want to know why you're researching saltwater enemas...

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.

SD-
You mis-assume that I am.
I'm simply repeating a comment by an alleged RN elsewhere who was saying what could be done to help keep you hydrated in emergency conditions.
Like I said, "Seriously."

Yes, read that also. A quick trip to the bookcase provided the answer. Survive the Savage Sea by Dougal Robertson, Sheridan House, 1973, page 94.

Well, I suppose it would help pass the time ...
