My dad gifted me with a 110v dc single cup coffee maker that draws 500w, I' use it to make that first cup of coffee without waking the Admiral up.
I reckon firing up the Honda would short circut my plan

If what I'm reading is right I could wire my 700w into my 50 amp windlass breaker, it's installed right there in my Nav station/battery locker about 3 inches from where I keep the inverter anyway.
I was just afraid of running the windlass and forgetting it turn off my laptop but really that should not be a problem - or if it would it would just trip the breaker anyway, not melt the boat.
