The boats we can afford are around 15 years old. This means an old water maker that makes a dribble of water.
One of Chloé's must haves for the trip was ample water. And with two kids screaming around I can't help but agree.
Sadly, waters makers are not cheap. They are big, complicated bits of equipment. I read many reviews of water makers and settled on one that reviewed exceptionally well, had great support and seemed like I could both install and fix it.
In the, hopefully near, future I'll follow up with a post about installing the water maker.
