The fresh water capacity on Alnwick is probably larger than most - it has been discussed on here before - and we usually take on enough water to last a month or so. We can be on the water point at Cropredy for a couple of hours filling up but if someone else comes along, we usually break off and let them fill up while we do other stuff. The time taken for us to fill did once have a devastating effect on another boat. The boat was called Herons Rest and the then new owner was moored next to us at Cropredy. The first time he filled his tank. he connected up his hose and left the boat filling for two hours (as we do - he obviously thought this was the norm) and returned to find his cabin with about six inches of water flooding it!
