Free places to fill water tanks - eastern Long Island Sound

In Martha's vinyard last summer, they had a floating water dock that was anchored near the channel. You simply pull up, tie on, and fill you water tanks. It was anchored at both ends so it wouldn't swing, and 2 boats could fill-up at the same time. The water tasted good.

Gratuitous water picture


Montauk has a town dock but the water tastes HORRIBLE. I mean like it sat baking in a black, 10 inch diameter, plastic hose before getting to your boat. Which it actually did. I let the water run for 30 minutes and it still tasted horible.

Are there any places where one can get good water in the eastern sound? We usually moor or anchor all summer and a watermaker isn't in the budget. We hold 268 gallons, which holds our family of 6 for quite awhile, even with some quick showers. I'd be willing to sail a few hours to get water. (Want to sail anyway, so why not?)

Another gratuitous water picture


Any ideas on good place to get free water.

Regards,
Brad
