Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

Rather surprising no one has posed the question so far, so I'll give it a shot...

Why on earth would one want to completely spoil the exquisite pleasure of sailing a 25-footer in sufficient breeze to put her on a heel, by running one of those infernal things? (grin)

I forget, what sort of power do you have aboard your boat? Inboard, or outboard? The 1000 is actually a pretty inefficient way to charge batteries, after all...
