Re:Re: Could this be made small scale?
1) Get a reverse osmosis machine.
yes, but they need a shed load of energy - either electricity or run off the engine flywheel. Both options mean running the engine more than is preferable.
2) Sail more than 12 nautical miles from land. and 3) Throw sewage overboard.
That is what we do (I won't admit to doing at less than 12 miles though). Holding tanks are horrible things and being able to reduce the amount of shit being lugged around would be nice.
I just like the idea of being able to get water from shit as well as carrying jerry cans lashed to the guardwires.
