Inverter or Generator?

If you wanted to run AC on the hook which would you prefer and why.

Thanks

Inverter or Generator?

Chuck, if I was towing a barge full of batteries and a DC generator, I''d choose the inverter. Every so often I''d start my battery charge and then leave in my dinghy to go fishing. OTOH if I wanted to power an A/C unit while on the hook and didn''t want to be towing the barge, I''d ask myself why I hadn''t brought fans, wind scoops and awnings with me.

Batteries won''t cut it for air conditioning, I''m afraid.

Jack
