With Avazquez I have to agree. The old threads have a weath of information that can be mined and put to use with today's vessels... Even if you are using a book from the 1800s, It will have info that will be applicable on today's vessels. Even if you have to update it somewhat.

Entec Gen & Old Posts

I have an Entec West 4.2 KW that came with the boat. It has the Farymann engine and a little vibration, but seems sufficiently insulated and mounted and we rarely notice it. Maybe I lack the reference of a 3 cyclinder. Works great.

Sailingdog - regarding old posts. I ran into this thread while researching my own generator, and found the historical value worth while. After seeing one of you earier comments about responding to old threads, I am religious about checking the dates. However, I'm glad that this thread was available for me to read, with updates, and to add to as well.

I find a little generalized hypocracy here (not attributed to any one member), whereas some members will chid others for not researching old threads when posting new threads(questions). Then others chid members for updating topics or threads that they considered to be too old.

The search function works great, and often Google will get you right into a thread that one needs, too.
