I still don't get Creed's humor. Advocating a portable genset that would be used in an anchorage after hours? Advertising where to buy one? That's what this string is about, the "me generation" not considering that their noise is in other people's space.

To hellosailor, if you need a "spare", sign up for SeaTow or TowBoatUS. They cover situations your genset won't.

If you need to charge your batteries, use your auxiliary. It is probably faster and more fuel efficient and you can get the added advantage of hot water. If you want to minimize your charging time, get one or another of the gel technology batteries and a smart regulator--could be cheaper than a Honda generator. You could run your wife's hair dryer off an inverter.
