I like Gord's idea. Nothing else would be required.

Definitely don't get the genset exposed to salt water (genset and generator are interchangeable terms, I think). If you get corrosion on any of the electrical elements, you'll have a piece of junk in short order.

My wife made a subrella cover for our portable. Looks cool! when we are underway, I store it in the sail locker. When I am using it, I put it in the anchor locker on a shelve. The anchor locker is vented, and I keep it open when I am running it. When I have finished using it, I shut the anchor locker hatch. Still vented, so not very much concern. On the cap of the generator, there is a knob to vent the tank, or to close the tank down. I shut this down when I am about to cover the generator. I use my shore power cord to attach the the generator to the boats system. I coil this back up and store it in one of the cockpit lockers when I get underway. Pretty simple, If you have the extra space in the lockers.

If you run the tank dry. You can store it anywhere as long as it is upright! Maybe sheath it in a plastic bag just for extra security. I run my tank dry, and store it in a locker at the front deck. I don't bag it, or anything.

What about one of these? SealLine Waterproof Packs and Duffles

These dry-bags are water proof and will easily accommodate the relatively small size of the generator. If the unit's emptied of fuel and aired for awhile, it would seem one could bag it up and store it in a corner of the lazzaret locker, no?
