There must not be much wind around all these sensitive anchorages. Way more often than not, we will have too much wind noise to know if someone's generator is running at the next mooring. Personally, I do not recall seeing a Honda Gen on the deck, so I'll reserve anchorage judgement, until I hear one for myself. I have one at home.
Often you can't hear it , but if downwind you can smell the fumes.
