Many models of boats have very active owners groups with an online presence and PDQ catamarans are no exception. When I have a question that I am sure has already been tackled by other PDQ owners, I simply post it on the PDQ Forum.
This is the post that I made yesterday:
Although our PDQ 32 is currently on the hard for the winter, we are making plans for our Caribbean cruise beginning late next year. Our boat has just the standard (if there is such a thing) water tank with a 47 gallon capacity. We would like to increase that, and install a watermaker, and have some questions on both of these.
For those on a PDQ 32 who have expanded their water-carrying capacity, could you share how you did so? Did you use hard or flexible tanks? Where did you locate them? Are they somehow tied into the main tank?
As for a watermaker, did you install a dedicated through-hull for it? If not, what did you do? If you did put a new through-hull in, where did it go?
We were also thinking that having the ability to use salt water for washing dishes would help in conserving water. Has anyone organized that on their 32?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

We have already received some good info regarding the galley pump. Hopefully others will share info on their watermaker installations.
I also know that we have some pretty boat-savvy readers here too, so feel free to jump in with your recommendations. The more ideas the better!
