travels so well over still water
. There is nothing quite so annoying as being in a quiet, secluded anchorage only to hear another boat pull in and fire up the generator, and perhaps the stereo.
of a genny across the water
is much more intense than those sitting in the genny-fired airconditioned comfort of their saloon
, imagine. Particularly in the evenings and early mornings. I have a Honda
2000 which runs like a sewing machine
, but 100metres away, I can still plainly hear it humming away.
Open frame generators are many times louder. The task of sufficiently soundproofing them and installing a blower fed secondary exhaust
, can more than double the price
of a decent genset.
