I strapped one of these on deck, and my wife can use a curling iron as well as the dryer....!

If I'm ever anchored between a retired coastie with an incredibly noisy generator and another sailor with a Class-A power amp stereo, I'll sure be glad I keep earplugs onboard . . . < G >.

Frank, TB, hellosailor, y'all need one of these: Honda EU2000i Super Quiet Generator. (The reason I suggest Honda is their generators are well-known for their reliable, efficient, [relatively] quiet operation.) 2000W will power that hair dryer with watts to spare!

Either that or get yourselves lower-maintenance mates

Thanks, guys. After being married 33 years with four interesting and successful young adult children, I'm inclined to keep my wife, even if she is a bit "high maintenance" in some ways. And even though she's over 50, she's still a cutie with a great smile and personality to match.

I've considered a generator, but I hate noise and our 30 foot boat has little spare storage space for the added equipment.

I would be willing to consider a travel hair dryer if it would produce enough hot air to do it's job without major frustration (it helps if I can keep my wife happy and smiling ). So if anyone knows of one that will work satisfactorily, please let us all know.

Thanks again.

Frank.
