Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

I have a 2200 Honda powered inverter genny and only use it while on the hook or tied up in a slip. Can't use the shore power you have here as my stuff runns on 240v AC single phase. I would not use it while sailing as the oil in the sump would run to one side and leave the thing without lubrication. If you want a porta genny that you can use on the tilt, get a two stroke.

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!.
