With the final bit of our Seamanship homework completed last Friday (woo hoo!) we are already moving on to the latest additions to our to-do list. We now have a very large watermaker box taking up residence in our salon area. This watermaker is the single largest purchase decision that we have made for our boat to date. Now that the money has long since left our bank account I am confident that we’ll be happy that we made the investment.

Similar to our discussions yesterday about where to store various items, we now need to decide where to install this unit. Unlike many monohulls that may have trouble finding the space, we actually have multiple options. I have yet to open the box and read any of the documentation, which itself might include some suggestions for a suitable spot, but my research to this point leads me to believe that we want the location to be easily accessible for routine maintenance. I think that it might also be nice to have the spot be ok to get a bit wet?

Unrelated to any of the above, check out these swans which have taken up residence just off our marina’s fuel dock. Over the course of the day we saw multiple cars stopping to have people get out and snap some pics of them. Are swans a good sailing omen?
