The AquaPur watermaker is a more than decent choice. Had a portable unit on a Beneteau 45f5. You could attach it to the waterline or use it in a life boat in an emergency. Never had to use it offshore in an emergency. DID have to use it when coming down the Erie Canal late in October of one year. Stopped in Tarrytown, NY. The restaurant was open, the marina was closed. The restaurant would not even let us take a pitcher (like a beer pitcher) of water to our boat to have water for coffee. SO - hooked it up and pumped water in from the Hudson!!!! According to the pellets and the strips they supply with the unit, that water was cleaner than a glass of water from the restaurant (acquired the next day). And that was from the Hudson!

Is a wonderful unit, and will highly recommend it, but not Tarrytown Marina.

Fair Winds,
Mary
