    I need scarcely add then that there are few favours of the minor kind which a considerate captain may bestow on his crew more appreciated than giving them as much fresh water as will serve to carry off the abominable salt from their clothes after they have first been well scoured in the water of the ocean; it is a great comfort and an officer of any activity by a judicious management of the ship's regular stock and above all by losing no opportunity of catching rain water need seldom be without the means of giving to each man of his crew a gallon twice a week during the longest voyage.

    - Captain Basil Hall, RN
