Valid point !

The plan is, to take the generator only on occasion, when really needed and also to built a special ventilated box-cradle out of Starboard to raise it some, to shelter it when not used (during the sail to the anchorage). The box would then be partially opened (for the needed aircirculation/cooling). The box cradle should even help a little bit with the noise. I heard the Honda would be one of the least noisiest ... and I would hate to disturb fellow sailors on the anchorage .....
