Add a raw-water galley pump - John Martin


Consider adding a seawater (lake-water) pump in the galley.  While the boat is out of the water, on jack-stands, drill the hole, and install, a thru-hull-fitting for a seawater (lake-water) intake.  Install a pump in the galley, next to the sink.  Then, you can do the initial dish washing with seawater (lake-water), and rinse with fresh-water.  This should dramatically reduce your fresh water usage.
