Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

Having gas on board always increases danger of fire. Unfortunately, there seems to be no diesel as handy as those little Honda generators. I would love to have a small, secondary, fixed diesel generator but have never seen one that was not too heavy and large to be practical on a 35' boat. I would think Honda could answer the OP's question about running at an angle. It's a good question.
