Their dream of cruising together started to become a reality in June of 2011. And like many others before them, they ran into a problem. The wife wanted something and the husband had to figure a way to make it happen. A Watermaker had been added to the list of things to acquire, but quite frankly, they were both appalled at the price of some of the units on the market. They read blogs and debates on whether "To Water, or Not To Water", and couldn't help but thinking that if Watermakers were more affordable for the common cruiser, then more people would have one. So he started researching and using his knowledge of previous Watermaker installations to create a system that turns making water into a reality for cruisers in all budget ranges. And this is how DIY Watermakers came into existence.
