James,

I am glad to see you are enjoying life.

We will be around St Maarten at the start of the season. If you happen to want to bang your way back that way.

A few years we sailed from Santa Marta to Guadeloupe.

What a miserable passage 25-35 on the nose for 8 days.

Eric

Good point.  I check that line on a regular basis - thanks to you giving me that bit of advice about a year ago.  Thanks!

As an afterthought, check the rubber hose that attaches the stove to the propane supply line.

The hose was rubbing on the stove and I was lucky to catch it before I had a problem. I have replace it with steel braided hydraulic hose and rerouted the hose to prevent disaster.

James,

I had my hoses duplicated at a hydraulic shop in St. Maarten. They used aeroquip hose and  swage on fittings. They are much less money than the do it yourself ones that come with the watermaker.

Just make sure that the steel braid in the hose is stainless..

The hoses are usually rated at 5000 psi. Hydraulic shops make hoses for bulldozers, etc. You can find them everywhere.

Good evening everyone.  
I have a Dessalator 160L/hr, and I'd like to order a spare set of high pressure hoses with fittings. 
Online, I am finding these to be quite expensive with stainless steel JIC fittings. 
Can anyone direct me to a good vendor for these (with fittings? )

You can contact me directly at jamescromie 'at' yahoo 'dot' com in order to avoid posting any commercial information (not sure if that is against the forum rules)... 

Many Thanks
