The REHAB Fishing Team Chooses Blue Water Desalination
“You can stay out longer when you have access to more and more fresh water,” declared Jasen Gast, after having a new Blue Water Desalination Express XT 600 installed on his 45’ Buddy Davis sportfish REHAB. Gast hails from Freeport, Texas and enjoys fishing throughout the Gulf of Mexico – both for fun and for lucrative tournament purses.
Fishing along the Gulf Coast of Texas is a bit different from some other areas. To hunt billfish, you must travel 80 to 125 miles offshore. These distances aren’t well-traveled in a single day and involve overnight and 3-day fishing trips for most boats.
Casa Vieja Lodge Anglers enjoy endless water thanks to Blue Water Desalination
There comes a point in every captain and boat owner’s career where a piece of equipment that once was seen as a luxury becomes a straight-up necessity. Captain David Salazar, owner/operator of the Casa Vieja Fishing Lodge in Guatemala, recently reached that tipping point with the water supplies aboard several of his fleet’s custom sportfish boats. Captain Salazar explains, “With only so many gallons in the freshwater tanks, we were literally rationing water gallon-by-gallon during our day and overnight fishing trips.”
Blue Water Desalination’s Managing Director, Jim Santa has known Captain Salazar for many years, so it was an easy decision for Salazar to seek out Jim’s advice on equipping the fleet with marine watermakers. “I’ve known Jim for a long time, and our friendship definitely played a role in choosing Blue Water, but the quality and advanced features of the products helped seal the deal,” he explained.
