Re: Need Some Advice on (6) Mo. Provisioning

Yes, I have a nice 3k that's almost new, runs cheap. I have 10K; 3rd is 15 k , 4th one is a diesel at 35 K but too big for boat. The last 3 are milltary surplus gen's., big and weigh a lot.

I thought.. I'd look around for a smaller diesel, rated at 12 to 15 K. I might take the little 3 K, small, quiet, cheap to run as a back up. I don't like gas on board, always a concern but not so much with this little gen. . The power boats have carb. fires, line leakage & all that.

The reason.. I was thinking of a 12 to 15 K Gen., my cooling system is old and problem-matic. Thinking about 15K A/C and installing at forward hatch, also 3 way marine frig. . This would get rid of all my 42 year old problem ( old A/C & Cold Box) childs. I'm use to having A/C and don't want to be in a sweat box. My windows do not open and no air flow to speak of... so sweat box is the right description.
