I hope you don't need a generator. I think a lot of it is how you 'cruise'. If your time on anchor is limited, and you find yourself in marinas frequently, you will not. Same with a watermaker. But between the fridge, hair dryer, hot water, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, etc, etc... you might be surprised!
And if I was going to go back, I would probably buy the little Honda like many here have done. Seems a lot closer to the KISS principle, it is cheap, and seems reliable. The only negative is you will now have to carry more gasoline, versus diesel.
Anyways, look forward to seeing you out here!! My kids have always wanted a babysitter that had an Outbound!
