    While there may well be a little sodium in the boat's water, in general it shouldn't be enough to cause a problem until the filters are in need of replacement. On the other hand, a lot of LR regulars need to consider their age (and circumference) being a factor, especially since so much time is spent standing/sitting on a LR trip. For AARP types, and I'm in that category, that will often lead to moderate swelling of the ankles after a couple/few days regardless of salt intake. And while I'm at it, I'm constantly amazed by some of the guys I see in the galley dumping large amounts of salt on their meals before (yes, before) even tasting it. A shake or two of salt far exceeds any small amount of residual in the water---just sayin'.

    This was from over 25 years ago. Plastic mug. Red Silkscreen. Washed in the dishwasher 1000 plus times.
    I'm sure the ink they used us now illegal due to environmental reasons.

    They have done it with their beverage mugs at least twice before. Here's the evidence in Blue & White to prove it.

    I always respect the Professor's opinion. None of us is getting any younger. I'm happy about the Excel's conservation policy. I will no longer throw my filthy, bloody ass shorts and shirts over the side on the way home from trips.

    However I'm still going to have a couple cold beers with my breakfast every now and then. I draw the line at cigars upstairs though, can't do that. Lot of unhealthy activity on LR trips. That's one of the reasons I go.

    I always have my fave bubba mug with me on a long range trip. I bring several different flavor crystal lite packs. I've never had a problem with using the boats ice or water supply. The food is usually excellent, no need too salt it up. Like wahoodad my gally tab is none or small. Dang I need to come go fishing soon!

    Not trying to step on anyone’s toes here, but if you are sensitive to sodium you may want to consider bottled water on the boat.

    RO (or reverse osmosis) systems are much more than a water filter. Filters do nothing about the salt, or dissolved solids in water. Reverse osmosis purifies water by way of extremely high water pressure against a semi-permeable membrane reducing dissolved solids in water. Purified water permeates the membrane and goes to a holding tank for on demand use. Not all of the water that is pumped against the membrane permeates. The water that doesn’t make it through the membrane, along with the desolved solids from the water that does, makes up the portion of water called the concentrate which is dumped over the side.

    Seawater RO systems reduce the total dissolved solids (TDS) in seawater from >30,000 ppm down to safe drinking levels. Your tap water generally runs about 550 ppm on average. I have seen brand new systems on boats get around 650 ppm.

    Now here is the problem...the temperature of the raw water has an effect on the performance of the RO system. 70 degrees generally will yield the best performance from the membrane. Lower temperature produces less product water, higher temperatures produce higher TDS. This is why the water on the boat might taste a bit salty at times. Because it is.

    Thank you Fishin_Buddy and freegaff2. I'm going to try the bottled water on my next 14 day trip. The water gets mighty warm down there in the lower zone.

    Wonder how the guys that have worked and lived on these boats for years have survived the water

    They’re younger than the bulk of the anglers, get more excercise during the trips. How many of the older guys are taking diuretics is an indicator. Another factor, for some, might be that smokers have compromised circulation.

    Don’t get me wrong, RO technology is the best we have for making potable water from seawater. However, I think the boats need to be more careful with their water systems.

    Also no mention of swollen ankles, free mugs, cigarette butts, raw sewage, Costa Rica, reverse osmosis systems, trash compactors, compression stockings, island closures, code of ethics, and salt intake - a real hair puller here heh?:puff:
