Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

Just to pile on:

Spend the extra green on the 2 kw Honda. We've got the eu200, and haven't regretted the purchase.

As for location, most of the time we run it hanging from one of our dinghy davits. That gets it out of the way, and I can lower it so that the exhaust is below our caprail (we've got about 5' of freeboard.) That takes care of the majority of the CO threat, and also lowers the (already) low running noise to an almost ignorable level.
