Now, if we could only figure out a way to deaden the noise for everyone else within earshot of these things…

Portable generators on cruising boats – definitely a “No one minds the smell of their own farts” sort of deal… (grin, bigtime)
I don't know what you were hearing - the Honda is very quiet when heard from another boat. We had a guy rafted up to us here in Vero Beach mooring field, and when his ran we didn't even notice it. Maybe you heard one that was out of tune or a different brand? It's only the vibration when it is setting on the deck that transfers below which we find objectionable. Hoisting it off the deck solves that.
