I think transferring it to a dmaller vessel like mine might be the best experiment...just to make sure what its real range of usefulness is.

Plus Irv needs a rum still, not a water maker...

Guys thanks for helping me out. Scott you would have to remove your bunk to make room for my Dometic XTC 1800 Sea Exchange plus it has a Spot Zero 2000. Ive read the book but haven’t played with it but it worked during the survey. I’ll bring it with me and we can play after a dozen rums.

Upside to a timber boat - they hate fresh but love saltwater.

I never knew wood boat owners washed them in salt water, must be a new grade of S/S.

After reading all that I am now more convinced than ever that God was correct inventing fiberglass. Wood boats are like teak, I love it in on your boat.
