Like I said, "Seriously."

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.

What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Go eat some dirt ad wash it down with a nice glass of rain gutter water.

I read a yogi can ingest, if that's the correct word, liquids rectally using muscle control although it takes years of dedicated study.
Hell, as a kid, Bob did the same thing with the seat of a high velocity Oldsmoble and it took only a second or two to learn!

Nonetheless, saltwater enema, a worthwhile bit of survival info to file away ... might save a life. Ya never know.

I only meant the coffee filter to get the chunks out. (g)
You can't do much better than rain water. NYC drinks rain water, from reservoirs upstate. Grand Rapids, MI pumps their drinking water out of Lake Michigan. In both cases, it is what they do afterwards to it that makes it unpalatable.

Since the OP was interested in survival, I would expect that, if in that situation, he'd probably be quite pleased with rain water. I'd sure want a gulp of something while rigging up my saltwater enema.(G)

I am a water well driller and I always chuckle when people, usually women, see me drinking water being pumped directly from their well. They, with a superior tone of voice, announce that they only drink bottled water. I've given up on trying to explain where that comes from.

You mean the municipal tap, minus the chlorine? If it's more or less clean, bottlers don't have to melt a glacier...they can dig a hole downhill from the town dump.

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.
Gees, I’m thirsty pass the bilge pump.
