I've never used a generator on boat...internal or external. I'm about to charter a 42 footer with a generator. We don't run the AC at night and historically we've had to run the engines for a couple...

Jelman.....I've also given TMM a couple of looks and unless Horizon really knocks my socks off this Summer, I may give them a try. Again, the only negative for me is location. I like to head West my...

GeorgeDog you're a better man than I. When I go on vacation, I leave my "greasemonkey" suit at home! I expect the boat to well-maintained, lubricated, clean and seaworthy. It's not that...
