rented generator: Need ground?

Hey all,

I'm looking at an afternoon event on my 32' islander (1978) and need some good ol' a/c juice.. fairly high draw.

I was just going to rent a generator, but a friend of mine mentioned that there might be some dangerous static build up on the generator if it wasn't properly grounded.

Is this true, and if so, is there a way I could go about grounding it through the keel somehow (d/c wiring?)
