I'm guilty along with Larry. I run my gen set when we are down in the Caribbean
all the time. We always anchor as far to starboard in an anchorage as we possibly can (starboard side exhaust). Gen is a Westerbeke
7.6. We have a water
separator but it still is pretty noisy. I have only had one person complain and that was in Guatemala
up the Rio Dulce. I will go out of my way to anchor where I am not bothering anybody. I will even move the boat if someone comes up on my starboard side...but my gen set is going to run. How else do you keep the air conditioning
, ice maker, water
maker and bread maker operating?
