New Genset from Honda

For those of you who are looking for a very quiet genset, Honda recently introduced the Honda 2200I, which is just as quiet as the older 2000i. I just placed my order.

Re: New Genset from Honda

Nice improvement on a generator that is already a great product.
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: HONDA EU2200i GENERATOR: More Power To You!
I use mine for charging my Electric Propulsion battery bank. I also use as a poor man's hybrid when electric sailing. Plus use it for powering tools. If mine were not still working so well after ten years I'd buy it. Now if they would give it a remote start it would be perfect.

Re: New Genset from Honda

In my case, I need the genset to run my portable oxygen generator, and the 12,000 BTU heat pump. Bad lungs are a *****!

All the best,

Gary

You definitely want the reliability of a Honda then. I assume you will use it as a backup in case power failures?

I'm guessing it is the other way around; the power requirements are high enough that he needs to use the Gen Set regularly, and if that fails, head toward shore power on batteries.

Re: New Genset from Honda

My oxygen generator draws 17 amps, which is a heavy load for the house batteries, which consists of 4 T105s in a series/parallel setup. This, plus the refrigerator (5 amps), plus the 3G Radar, GPS/plotter, and the VHF amounts to a lot of drawdown when I'm sailing all day, then anchoring up for the night. Additionally, there is no way to run that boat's AC on the house batteries. So, the genset is a must for me.

Re: New Genset from Honda

For those who are using the Honda's where do you set them up so you don't get any exhaust into the cabin?

Re: New Genset from Honda

My last generator was placed on the lazerette seat at the stern of the boat, the exhaust went overboard in that position. Not sure about the Honda's exhaust port yet, but if I have to I will construct a platform for it so the exhaust goes overboard as well.

I'll keep you posted,

Gary

Gary my friend that could be a potential place CO could get sucked into the cabin. Especially if it’s closed up being air conditioned

You have a Dodger I remember the air could flow around it leaving a low pressure system at you companionway pulling in the CO from the exhaust. It’s heavier than air also. We it ours in the dingy when we ran it

Depends on how I use it. Usually in standby position it sits outside the cockpit coaming with the exhaust pointing aft. There is a photo in this post:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: RELIABILITY: So much for that!
If I am using it for an extended time for example when Electro-saiing I might carry it to the foredeck run the exhaust off the leeward side. I also have built a platform and can use the swim ladder to hold it with the exhaust pointing aft again.
