supplemental generator

Has anyone found a better supplemental generator for the 380 than the Honda 2000?

Depends what you mean by "better." I had a cheap (Chinese made) 2 stroke costing around $100 but the stink and noise was excessive, even though it worked just fine. The 4 stroke Honda that replaced it was three times the price but can hardly be heard and creates far less pollution.

Especially with 2 stroke motors - remember to turn off the fuel **** to drain the carburettor - don't just hit the kill switch or eventually the residual fuel will make the carburettor gum up

Assuming that you are talking about a Catalina 380, I used a Fisher Panda 4.5 kw. Very quiet and will run everything - for the most part. However, better get ready for a $15,000 price tag!! If that is not un your budget, better try Cam's advice.
