the use of wind gens in short term anchoring is ridiculous. UNLESS you are a long range cruiser recharging and refitting. then go for it.
when you find self grousing about wind gens and honda gens, ye need to get a change of scenery. travel, see what is out here. use nature donot bitch when others do.
hondas cannot be heard a boat length away from you, so ..let that rest. it could be diesel fumes into your forepeak or vee berth. all night. it could even be nature silently beautiful as you drink more booze filled self proclaimed delights.
you will still grouse.
take it out of town for a change of scenery. get back refreshed. get away from the dockmates with whom you share beliefs and ideas...get some STRANGE for your boat.
praise free energy and thank for the beauty of the anchorage you are so privileged to be allowed to use.
enjoy the underlying serenity, if there is any.
hard to find serenity in a citified anchorage in usa. find something to relax your soul despite your proximity to other citified folks unable or unwiling to leave their busy home waters.
if you are city folk seeking serenity and peace, go out of city into isolation in country so you appreciate the peace. city folks donot drive far out of town, they miss their noises and hustles. music must be that which is their favorite.
ambient music becomes noise pollution, not enjoyment of a different culture without the cover charge.
many seem to deeply miss their landanchors.
with completely peaceful anchorages comes the requirement of dealing with self.. perhaps that could be one reason for their abject misery in a wind gen and honda filled anchorage within city limits or 26 miles of home slip.
comments need not be addressed to someone..a quote is merely a quote, not necessarily addressing an individual.
if shoesies fit, proudly wear em.
