ccboston ... you are correct about the bottled water. It is expensive and it is also much better. There is less risk from contamination and so forth.
Another possibility is to use a "PUR" (brand name) water filter. They sell a small filter tank (maybe a gallon and a half or two) that dispenses water from a spigot. Very simple, very effective, very good water.
They sell them at Lowes, Home Depot etc.

Indirectly related: There was an article about 2 years ago in the Wall Street Journal, describing a science project done by a high school student. Her dad traveled a lot for business and she asked him to bring home tap water samples from the airliners on which he flew. She then grew out bacteria cultures from this water. The results were pretty gross. I assume the same thing applies to tank water on boats.

Gosling''s Black Seal neat, on the rocks, with a splash of tonic or fruit juice is the way to go once the boat is secured (or even if there is no boat to be found ;-) ).

My God! Is it any coincidence that there are twice as many replies to this thread than the next runner up? All of you only drink when you are in port? (Except for this pirate fella, who seems to be 3 sheets to the wind at all times.)That explains why when I was in Rio Dulce Guatemala nobody ever left port.They were all to busy drinking port.The Captain of the boat I was on was a reformed alcoholic. That is, he smoked pot and chased it with coke.(Cola) If you take the Curt Russel character of Captain Ron and times him by 100.... you get the idea. My best picture is of him pissing over the starboard rail of his boat which was christened the Nightmare. And the recommended cruising reading material is the History of Booze on sailing ships??? I have even read that you pour your hootch into the gills of the fish you catch. Misery loves company. It''s my guess that after 1 1/2 hours in port the collective bunch of you could be drinking Listerine Classic martinis and not know the difference. I have to admit, I am a wee bit intrigued by the syrup over the body thing. Way Hay and a up she rises...What a bunch of morally decrepit animals you all are....which must explain why I long to get back into sailing and am searching for a vessel.
