    What he wants to know, I guess, is how much fresh water should bring his boat.

    It depends on the type of use. For example, do you need a daily shower? How about washing clothes?

    Some passengers take a daily shower and some not. Depends on the number of persons on board, the type of vessel and the facilities provided on board. In large cruise ships, for example, a figure of 120 l / man-day can be good to start calculating.

    No class requirements.
    How much food should carry a boat, for safety? : Enough for anyone to starve.
    My advice is to think a little more before launching questions that may seem unprofessional.
