Could one buy a r/o watermaker intended for home use and boost the pressure up to 60 lbs with an auxiliary pump and use it on a boat?
I researched this some time ago with several Home R/O makers and this was what I found out.

Most of the Home R/O systems are intended for much lower Total Disolved Solids than that found in salt water. The membranes are also not intended for the pressure of a Salt Water R/O system.
