Re: Running a portable generator at an angle of heel

"Honda 1000 8 amp per hour
Honda 2000 13.3 amp per hour"

Misleading? No more so than "knots per hour". When you see "amps per hour" that's an immediate tipoff that something has gang aglay. In both cases the "per hour" is simply wrong.

"...The Honda EU1000i has a maximum of 1000 watts/8.3 amps @ 120V. It is super quiet, 53-59 dBA"
" The EU2000i, lightweight generator which produces 2000 watts/16.7 amps @ 120V of maximum power. It is super quiet, 53-59 dbA"

I know people who have been clocked at 76db talking on the phone. Folks who refuse to believe they are shouting because they have signifcant hearing loss and somehow think that they have to shout to be heard because of it. Is 59dbA quiet, out on the water? Hellno. Quieter than many gensets? Could be.
