We’re new to our Mac26X and need to provide the galley and head faucets with fresh water.
Any suggestions on best approach, collapsible versus hard container? It seems like tubing from the pump-faucet to reservoir (say 5 gal) should have a permanent connection on each end.
Thus, for example, I’m puzzled as to how the collapsible (e.g., Reliance Products) 5 gal containers (seen at West Marine and Blue Water) work in this mode, as one would need to twist the permanent-connected tubing to remove the cap for filling.
Are there some better options out there?
They were a little pricier than some of the ones I found at Canadian Tire, but I found them to be much sturdier. I just clamped the hose from the sink onto the jugs with some stainless steel hose clamps. It worked fine.

Welcome to MYCBC
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
