Good place for it....

Re: anchorage etiquette

Someone needs to teach the Chesapeake boats etiquette then.

Power Boaters and sailboaters alike think nothing of running their generators all night in an anchorage to run their air conditioners to stay cool. Ive chastized a few of my friends who have the Honda 2000 ( I have one also) about anchoring upwind of others and then running it all night spewing fumes. They are very aware of fumes comming into their own cabins, but sometimes unwittingly dont think of those downwind. Mmost people are good manered, but it justs take one to ruin the party and ambiance,

I think because it is so brutally hot and humid. here in the Chessie in July and August people run them all night more frequently

Re: anchorage etiquette

10pm is after Cruisers Midnight of 9pm so I would turn it off by then.

I hate those red Honda petrol generators because people run them on deck and they are loud!

Reinforce earlier comments about people who turn generator on then go to shore. How ignorant!

Can we change this to a gun thread so we can discuss how to shoot out a generator sitting on deck? . 50 Cal should do it.

Re: anchorage etiquette

My wife had a little Honda " suitcase" gen. When on eco throtlle, and placed in the foot well of the cockpit of her Ranger 26, you could not hear it when sitting next to the boat in a dinghy. We would watch movies at night out on the anchorage off key west. I would Kayak over to visit her from my boat, which was generally anchored down wind of her, and would'nt know she had the thing on untill I popped my head up over her rail to climb a board.

Re: anchorage etiquette

lol mark---i still love ye....
i got here first, way back in december--am anchored in zihuatenejo right in the middle of the playa madera/playa principal anchorage.
i was nice n quiet until my mechanic arrived--now we use a daylight only generator--used to be a red honda now is a plain wrap--err unwrapped honda 2000.
because i use the genny i now have a beautiful bit of independence--my electric windlass works perfectly well...as does my manual one.(manny and ellie on my bow)
now when we finish alignment and motor mounts i can sail as a buddy boat with my mechanic --and not have to concern myself with finding crew..
but i wanna shoot souls who donot have a clue as to how the anchors are set in a south facing bay with 360 circling daily...
.some folks seem to think pulling up someone else's anchor is a fun thing to do--and do not take responsibility for their actions .....

They are unbeleiveably quiet...especially in the eco mode.....I have one. Whe people use the to power their air cons its full throttle and its not so much the noise.....its the fumes downwind which get me. When I go below I hear nothing of them.

Acceptable,...do you think we're there yet?

Personally, I hope not. It's bound to happen in some harbors. I spent an hour or so between a sailboat running their engine on my port side and a powerboat off my bow running a belowdecks gen set. There were both completely audible even though the owners probably didn't think so. You just have to endure it or go ashore. I wouldn't do it myself.

For the most part though, it's still rare in the places we anchor which is the majority of time for us.

Keep up the good work Mainesail promoting big battery banks.

Re: anchorage etiquette

9AM is way too early for some of us. If we have the courtesy NOT to keep you up till 3AM, you shouldn't wake me up until after 11AM.

One of my biggest frustration are people with the Honda suitcase generators who insist they are quiet. Those things have the irritating whine of a mosquito circling your head.

Re: anchorage etiquette

I have a cannon for my little schooner now. If someone wants to run their generator all night, they shouldn't mind me firing off my cannon at dawn...
