I'm getting really good and conserving water! We filled up in Nassau about 10-11 days ago and our tanks are still half full . . . I think. We don't have a gauge or anything, but by opening the center tank and sticking a wooden spoon in, that's what it looks like to me 😉. We hold 90 gallons plus about 10 more in the hot water tank. We use fresh water for four things: drinking, cooking, dishes and showering. The toilet uses salt water if you were wondering. So we conserve in 3 of the 4 areas.
Drinking - obviously by drinking beer and rum instead - just us, not Kaylee. She scarfs up all our milk.
Dishes - get washed and rinsed in salt water before a final fresh water rinse.
Bathing - similar to dishes, all washing in salt water off the back deck and then if we are lucky a hot fresh water rinse. Cooking - I haven't figured out a way to conserve water and don't think I want to.
Water is scarce and costs $.50 gallon in most places that have it, which isn't many. A water maker is a luxury that we do not have.
We only need fuel for the dinghy since the sailing has been so great. We've only run our engine for pulling and dropping the anchor for the most part. Our solar panels have also been working great, so we have kept our batteries going with that and the little bit of engine running while anchoring.
Enough for now. I don't even know if this will post on my 2G international cell coverage. If it works, I'll try to get some of Kaylee's journal posted and some more pictures.
