Quiet your Honda 2000

For you thousands of cruisers out there with the Honda 2000 Generator:

Though the Honda 2000 is a relatively quiet piece of equipment, when you set it on your deck, it can still be pretty noisy below. We tried putting ours on pads and that helped, but when we suspended it from the mizzen mast by a couple of lines it made a world of difference.

I used a little block system to lower it to the deck to start it each time, then hoist it off the deck just an inch or two.
