Don't get the Waterlog. They've got a serious problem with actually delivering a working product from what I've seen. The company has also had some financial issues IIRC. I wouldn't even consider it. While the idea/concept of a towed watermaker is a neat one, the company is considered less than reliable if you google for it. Also, consider the fact that no major English language sailing publication has ever reviewed it—even though it is made in the UK.
Also, when designing the installation, I would highly recommend having the watermaker have its own tank for its output. This is for two reasons. First, it prevents the watermaker water from contaminating the other water or vice versa. Second, it reduces the chances of you back flushing the watermaker with chlorinated water, which will destroy the RO membrane. You usually back flush the watermaker with RO water to clear the saltwater side before shutting it down for short periods of time.

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.
