Yeah, I like the odds.
No TV or air conditioning at anchor. Beware. I'm charging batts.

Re: anchorage etiquette

everyone is is aware risk of freezing to death and turns up the heat but less sensitivity to equal health risks of overheating. Have AC in saloon. Will only run it to get rid of humidity. Sweating doesn't work to cool you when it gets really humid and I haven't figured out how to safely sleep in the water. Think current crop of wind generators a lot less noisy than gensets even in a sound box. Have ac in the house as well goes on 1 or 2 days a year.

Sweating does help to cool you. People that dont sweat are the ones I worry about. I worked in hot kitchens (110 degrees in front of ovens and stoves at the beginning of my carrer and you do aclimate and do sweat. Even though its less effective in higher humidity as was mentioned it will still work to cool you unless the relative hudity is 100%. People who live in areas like Maine who are not accilmative to hot temperatures usually have a difficult probelm with hot weather initiially, be eventually their body adjusts. To running a dehumidifer would actually have more effect and be better for you than an air conditioner. It is also a well know fact the older you become the less effective your body is in terms of regulating heat. A fan blowing across you will in fact help with surface evaoporation which is what cools you.

Using a generator to use an air conditioner to maintain a 75 degree cabin is a personal choice, I have no problem with it and may have done it, but I would try to never endanger the health of the people down wind of me by spewing fumes from a generator and would practice courtesy as was mentioned all throughout the thread.

Re: anchorage etiquette

Agree with H. Run AC for 1/2h before dusk on rare occasion and attend to others around you. You can jump in the water during the day.

Have plumbing for genset. Didn't put it in. Hope to get by without it.Wonder if some smart engineer will come up with a micro-diesel turbine or something. Hopefully more efficient ( gensets are fuel hogs when viewed in terms of energy produced) and quieter with less need for maintenance.

I believe they are. Fuel is expensive and must be shipped to you.

That article was dated 2009. You would think some one would be pushing this technology if it were available.
