paulfitch is on a distinguished road
I've used my Honda 2000 for 4 years now without any electrical problems. I plug it into the shore power input. I have a Freedom/Heart 1500 inverter/charger and the Honda regularly puts 60+ amps into the house bank when the batteries are down 100 amp hours or more. I'm also on a Gemini and always pump up the Silette leg when at anchor. Gen. sits on back transom so wind carries away exhaust. I haven't grounded the gen. and have found no electrical problems in the past 4 years. Just had it in the shop about a month ago. Not bad service for a boat that's gone from Florida to Panama mostly in a salt air environment.
