I guess one could put in a water maker. What do people do besides line the deck with 5 gallon containers?

Opinions any one??

For what it is worth, when I was shopping, the Irwins I saw were consistently the worst boats I saw. To the point that I simply stopped looking at them. This was as much a matter of construction quality or lack thereof as how they were maintained.
