I'm personally not a fan of using a generator on a sailboat. They are noisy, heavy, and they require lots of fuel, if you're to use them for any significant period of time. The warnings about the exhaust are quite good, and I'd get a carbon monoxide detector for your boat's cabin just in case, if you do decide to get a generator.
You might want to look into using natural cooling methods when you're out at sea or at anchor, rather than a generator. Wind scoops, awnings and open hatches can do a lot to cool down the interior of a boat without requiring any fuel.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
