Re: Solar stills to make water - anyone using them?
I picked up 2, sealed US airforce survival solar stills. Each is about 3x5x3" and weighs about half a pound. They're for the abandon ship bag and hopefully will never be used.
The book "Sailing the farm" had lots of drawings and diagrams for DIY solar stills. They had rigid ones like in the above article and roll-up designs as well. The home made ones seem useful perhaps, but I'd be worried about water sloshing around in them and the salt water contaminating the fresh.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
