If your considering a manual RO system you might consider Sun Pure, very reasonably priced compared to other brands.

Congratulations! We've had our H44, "Journey" for six years. We are slowly working to prepare her for long distance cruising. We intend to take a break from work in two years. We are in the Puget Sound area. If you get our way drop a line to us.

I can't advocate for removing the boom Vang. How else do you pull the boom down when sailing downwind to get the proper shape in the mainsail?

when we bought our H46, she already had installed a Spectra 200T with MPC controls.  I changed the installation to make it more compact, to save storage space, etc.  But still be maintainable.  The module with the membrane and clark pump went on the starboard side in the foward cabin, under the little desk.  useless space for storage, but the watermaker fit!  Also put the shurflo pump and accumulator in here.  the prefilters are at the back of the small locker, under the liquor cabinet.  Water intake and raw water screen under the forward cabin floor.  MPC control box under the starboard side salon bench, far forward.  I agree about getting a manual one,  simple is better, for remote areas.  I'm in the process of trying to convert ours to  be manual.

our 1996 H46 has the hole through the slider frame, a padlock keeps it from rolling forward, unless the rollers are worn or loose.  From inside I fabricated some turn handles that latch it, when we're asleep at night.  We also have a stainless steel frame that fits in the companionway opening, and gives more ventilation.  we put bug screen over that.  Also have security bars and bug screens on the large overhead hatches.  I'd attach photos, but don't quite see how to do  it  here.

To follow up my own post, I went with a Lewmar windlass control & chain counter.  Hooking it up wasn't too hard, just had to fab a cable to connect with the original Lighthouse one.  The Lighthouse company was helpful, giving me the pin-outs.
