Good old O'day is on a distinguished road
I would say that Mumec is a troll, trolling for his to his towed (trolling) water maker, as he replied to his own initial post.

cheers.

Replying to one's own post is generally considered strange behavior... Welcome to Sailnet btw.

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.

Not really, newbies don't always realize there's an EDIT button, or how to use it.

Strange, is that those first five posts are dated 2001?!

If those guys haven't made any other posts in five years, yeah, I'd call the posts a bombing run. (Forumspeak for someone dropping in from the sky then leaving again and leaving something behind.)

True... One thing I'd say to EBS then is that buyer beware... The Waterlog's manufacturer has some serious financial problems. They have lost distributors due to unreturned e-mails, phone calls, and other such problems. The availability of parts seems to be an issue as well. There have also been reports of non-delivery of ordered hardware.

interesting that Mumec had quite the conversation with himself the first four posts, which of course happen to be all 'glowing reviews' .. it does make me wonder if there is the slightest chance that Mumec is affiliated? hmm?

Is there any news on these units, The concept looked like a Great Idea... but sometimes we have these great ideas and they are without merit.

I am looking for a Watermaker (preferably 12 volt since there is no room for either generator or Engine drive in my IP-35) We have a sea trip of 15oo milers planned for 2009 and then 6 months of gunkholing in the windwards. This thing might work for the sea trip but I think I need something that works while I am anchored.

Suggestions?

Also, has anyone here ever heard of "bahama Geroge" in North Carolina. He is touted to be a real expert on watermakers for small vessels?

90 percent of cruising time is spent at anchor somewhere, how's that towed watermaker going to make out then?
Ditto the towed generator (I can see a duo, but sole purpose towed, not on my weight restricted Cat.).
Outta water babe, gotta go for a day sail around the island !

Capstan...for any appreciably sized watermaker you will need a generator to make enough amps or recharge the batteries. Getting water in the windwards is easy and you do NOT NEED a watermaker for that trip. We were there for many months and for a 6 month cruise you will find the cost of buying water, or filling up when you take a slip, is thousands of bucks less than a watermaker AND all the stuff you need to run one.
Off the beaten path in remote places, they make sense...but not for a short duration cruise in a well traveled route.

hello I don't have a boat yet, I must rob a few banks first!

Can you not buy solar stills which float on the sea and use the heat of the sun to make water or don't they work?
