AC portable Rainman gets installed on a Beneteau 423 (Grenada, Caribbean)

Chantal and Gary Gellermann from Sailing Maracudja live on their yacht in the Caribbean. It became difficult to find clean potable water. Once they did find it, hauling bottles to fill the tanks of their Beneteau 423 was very inefficient. Purchasing a portable Rainman watermaker powered by a Honda generator solved their water problems.

After some time of use, they decided they would prefer to install their Rainman watermaker. The pressure supply unit (PSU) was installed in the lazerette and the reverse osmosis unit (RO) was mounted in the aft cabin. View the video of their thought process and installation of their 115VAC Rainman.
