There are times when we as people “just want to help” but can’t figure out how to.  During huge national disasters such a Hurricane Maria I felt a huge need to try and do something.  As a sailor, fresh water is one of the highest, most critical needs on a boat. Then it hit me, I could. I have a sailboat called the Lazy J. Fresh water was not a problem in Puerto Rico, but clean fresh water was. I purchased four water purifiers that could remove 99.99% of the impurities from dirty water and release clean, drinkable water.  Storing these in the second berth on the boat wasn’t a problem and suddenly, a solution. These purifiers were placed in an elementary school in San Juan.

I am a very blessed person, I could “do something” and my very sincere thanks go to the rest of the RideOut folks who picked up the slack while I was gone.
