Re: Quiet your Honda 2000

I find slapping halyards, and noisey wind generatos, far more offesive than my Honda. I try to be considerate of the boats around me, but some people get pissed just at the sight of it, running or not. Most of the time, with a slight breeze in the rigging, you can't hear it from 50' away, but some folks just can't let it go.

To eliminate slapping, I always wrap my halyards around the lowers a couple times, shackle to the base of my stanchions, and snug up in a clutch. I do this for the sanity of my marina neighbors, not just in an anchorage. Is there any reason not to do this?

Re: Quiet your Honda 2000

if someone is anchored so close to me they can hear my electricity generate--they are way too close. seeing i am already generating energy, then they came in after me, which means they need to relocate. sorry, folks, realistically speaking, there is no way that, in an anchorage you will hear either my generator or my burps. if youare able to hear such, you are WAY too close. my honda is only able to be heard less than 50 ft frommy boat--i checked personally while it was running.
btw--if your honda is hanging , make sure is hanging without any angle--wont work if tipped.
also--SLAPPING HALYARDS MAKE FOR BROKEN HALYARDS. TIE EM OFF SOMEHOW.

Larry,

It just hit me that you have turned the philosophy of some completely upside down. They hope to get everyone to suspend the use of generators while you hope to get them to use suspended generators. Nicely done, that!

Re: Quiet your Honda 2000

Unfortunatly the offending users are not considerate of others and anchor on top of someone else as has happened to me. They are usually in smaller boats and try to fit into smaller spots. Also they are not quiet. They can be heard from much greater distances than 50'. I suggest you get in your dingy after dark on a quiet night and see how far away it can be heard.
While hanging the genset makes it less annoying for you I'll bet it makes the noise louder for your neighbors.
Not all wind generators make noise. Practical Sailor did an excellent test a while back. It guided me to the choice I have. The only time you even know it's there is in gusty wind.It makes a sound like distant surf.
Jim
