|Old rudder with severe osmosis|
Now we know exactly what model we want, what power it will consume, what quantity of water it will supply and that it will fit mostly under our bunk making use of the seawater inlet for the galley. Or at least we thought we did until we had an email from the yard informing us that the object of our desire had been discontinued as "more efficient models are now available in the market".
So now we are back to researching and pondering. If the unit is size x will it still fit in the space we have? Come to think of it how big is that gap under the master bunk behind the drawers? Did we ever write down the measurements? Should we try another little-used space aft behind the fuel tank? What size are the other components? Where could we fit them? What power consumption? How much water do we really need to produce each day, which really equates to how long do we want to run the engine for each day?
So it seems we really are doing some long distance fitting out. Happy Christmas!
