Between the PNW, Hawaii, and Alaska. Mostly Salish Sea and Inside Passage. Easy to find solitude. Wintered over in Alaska on my last long duration trip.

there are two things your self absorbed self can do--
you can move to a different anchorage, perhaps another will exhibit absence of windmills, or you can stay and build up an anger so deep your face changes its appearance to ugly. fun to watch, but demanding the cruiserS around you ditch their best method of free battery charging just for your sensitive feelings is a little over the edge.
our self absorbed asses have batteries to charge. you MIGHT learn this if you ever leave the dock for longer than a night or two. i am surprised you donot have a wind generator up there in windyville. ye get more wind than sun in pnw.
Wow. Truly, your hatred is mystifying. And your assumptions...also kinda bizarre.

I merely commented at the rudeness of others blasting country music in quiet anchorage, and that as an example. I didn't say anything at all about wind generators. That was a different poster. You might try reading more carefully, as you are misdirecting all this rage.

Re: Ac on a mooring

i have no hatred. i merely watch the likes of you with your ugly faces and *****iness about everything destroying the peace in pair a dice, outside of usa. i describe reality here you interpret hatred., wow you a snowflake or something?? hahahaha pooor you.
reading is not putting your feelings into my words. you havenot the right to project your hatred into my being. hahahahaha i have not complained in a public forum about noises in an anchorage angering me. you did that. re read your words before you project your weaknesses onto others.
i am happily making my own energy saving dough and repairing 'cane damages. notice i said happily. try it sometime.
ignore the windgenny like you ignore your toddler.
you will be able to ignore it within a few minuets. is not difficult. however itis easier to ***** piss and moan about the manner in which other folks save money and use free energy.
you must be jealous of those with wind generation capability in pnw.

Re: Ac on a mooring

I just...don't know what to say lol. Calm down.

As I already explained, I didn't say a word about wind generators. You're having a rage stroke at the wrong person. You have made a very simple mistake. Just go back through the thread and read. It wasn't I who complained about wind generator noise. I was the guy recommending someone buy a generator! I even posted a video!

Re: Ac on a mooring

Insisting everyone in a shared environment keep it quiet just because you like it that way, or thinking your being there first gives extra rights,

does seem a very western-first-world bourgeois attitude to me.

Not at all how 99% of the rest of the world sees it.

Re: Ac on a mooring

No idea what you're talking about.

For the record, I am a proponent of generators on boats. I have no problem with wind generators. The only thing I commented on was loud stereos blasting country music. And I stand by that.

I don't understand what's happening here lol.

Re: Ac on a mooring

Hi, everyone. I think we are getting a little off-topic here, and it would be good to tone down the acrimony a tad... The OP's question has largely been answered: a generator is generally required to run AC on a boat of the size he owns, although I found Gary's swamp cooler design to be a very ingenious alternative. As for the rest - respect, courtesy and discretion is always advisable when making noise (generators, music, hailing from boat to boat, etc.) in a quiet anchorage. In my personal experience, most cruisers have enough common sense to figure out what is acceptable. I think we can put this thread to bed.

I agree.

I'm always mystified why some people go into a natural environment and play music.

Nature is beautiful. Listen to the music of the sea, the bush, the animals and birds. Or if there's total silence listen to it.

Wonderful.

Re: Ac on a mooring

They are looking for a quick party release from what they normally do.
They don't know.

Or the stripper onboard needs tunes/a beat to workout on the mast....

Re: Ac on a mooring

far as the air flow when anchored out

This past summer I spent LOTS of days on anchor on a mooring where the current controlled the direction the boat pointed into way beyond the wind to the point that there wasn't airflow through the boat. Those normally were the hot humid nasty days.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: Ac on a mooring

Heres a pic of a power boater at a quiet anchorage I was at this summer that thought his Honda 2000 was so quiet he only needed to run a 100 foot extension cord to get it away from him.
