An ideal bike to have on board…
Bikes and boats go together and it doesn’t get much better than a Strida bike and your boat. It has been on my whishlist for years…
Strida is a portable, belt-driven, folding bicycle with a distinctive ‘A’-shaped collapsible frame, designed by UK engineer and designer Mark Sanders.
One great advantage of Strida is that it can be folded and unfolded very fast, another one is that it has a greaseless kevlar belt that replaces the traditional chain drive to avoid mess, no rust and doesn’t need any maintenance. Once folded, it takes a very small space and you can wheel your Strida anywhere you go.

Katadyn Survivor 35 – manual watermaker
No sailor wants to be caught in a situation where he or she is completely devoid of fresh drinking water, so a Watermaker is a survival must for all ocean boat emergency kits.
Katadyn originally made the Survivor line of desalinators because the U.S. Navy wanted hand-operated, reverse-osmosis watermaker for their 35-person life-rafts.
Katadyn Survivor 35 is the most widely-used emergency desalinator. Produces up to 4.5 litres per hour, it is widely used by US and international military forces, voyagers, sea kayakers, and other adventurers.
To remove dissolved salts from seawater with reverse osmosis, part of the salt water is filtered through a semipermeable membrane. Only 10% of the water passes through the membrane. The remaining 90% flow past the membrane and at the same time cleans the membrane (self-cleaning effect). The small size of the “membrane pores“ ensures extremely pure drinking water, but extremely high pressures must be generated – normally 55 bar.
