Hello. Just curious if anyone has chartered a Lagoon 42 with watermaker recently? It turns out that they are infamously problematic and I'm wondering if anyone has had any recent (last 2 years) experiences. I'm asking here but not chartering in the BVIs but rather in another location where water isn't as easily available (if watermaker doesn't work). Doesn't really have perfect relevance to my situation but its worth asking nonetheless.

Here's why its important that the watermaker work - these boats come with half the holding tank capacity of normal L42s. So, if your watermaker isn't working, then refilling is more important. And, well, if water is much further apart, then its even more challenging.
