Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

While I don't use it on the boat, I have a Honda 1000 unit and find it incredibly useful. It is so quiet, that you can literally have it running between you and someone you are talking to without raising your voices. Seriously.

Bigger units are heavier and louder. You just have to size it for whatever you plan to use it for. The 1000w unit quiet handily ran the sump pump and refrigerator simultaneously after Sandy came through.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
