Id like to setup a small galley

Yamaha generator EF2000iSv2 inverter generator powering induction hotplate?

Id like to setup a small galley my generator is 2000watts I believe this generators in reality is 1600watts the hotplate is1300watts.
hotplate https://www.walmart.com/ip/NuWave-Pi...94&athena=true
will the generator power the hotplate?

when land based camping I would also like to power up my fry Daddy deep fat fryer it's 1200watts
https://www.amazon.com/Presto-05420-...DNMPW4MBTR2QN6
Currently only have one engine start battery interested in adding a small lawn mower sized battery to power a 12VDC air pump for live wells. was planning to keep this live well battery topped off w/ a solar charger (which died the first day I had it) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

stuff I'm powering w/ start battery
engine
bilge pumps
NAV lights
cabin lights
aft deck lights
underwater lights all lights are LED
VHS radio

Thanks for any useable advice.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Youre correct, the generator is rated for 1600 watts continuous. It will run both of the appliances youve linked to, one at a time with no or minuscule other loads.

Your loads are resistive so the generator will not need to start them.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Hope you are not running that generator in the cockpit where it appears to be shown in your photo. If you are I suggest you read this. https://www.pbo.co.uk/news/warning-a...-onboard-24937

Your loads are resistive so the generator will not need to “start” them.
what is Your loads are resistive? also please recommend a small marine battery for live well air pump.

generator will be outside cabin

That is irrelevant. In the cockpit CO fumes can and have caused fatalities.
Strongly suggest you close all ports and put the generator at the bow.
It is extremely unwise not to have a CO detector in the cabin while running these units anywhere on a boat.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Your boat looks small, but not tiny. Why limit yourself to a small " lawn mower sized battery? Why not install a decent house bank. A boat like that should be able to few reasonable sized batteries.

Most boaters use these portable gas generators as backups or support for charging. They arent normally used to drive regularly systems on a constant basis (outside of perhaps air-conditioning or water makers). It would be far easier, and probably safer, to use a simple propane stove, or a marine alcohol stove.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Another response on that generator. It is deadly the way it is pictured there. For goodness sake, read up on carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular cause of fatalities on boats. Just had some people killed by a generator like that here in Oz recently. They had it outside too.

I think everyone should read that article.

I am reluctant to take petrol aboard the yacht but what do you do when you have a petrol outboard? And if you do have a Honda portable generator where do you run it on the boat?

Is the safest place to carry an outboard attached to the push-pit?

vessel is 22'.

yes I would like to use 12VDC as much as possible like I have a 12VDC adaptor
for my laptop I plug it into a cigarette lighter socket off the starting battery (only when engine is running).

I would like to try a MARINE METAL BABY BUBBLE BOX AERATOR 3gal 2/AA
run off 2 AA batteries for the 5 gallon bucket live well.https://www.amazon.com/MARINE-METAL-...ct_top?ie=UTF8

using a small solar charger for phone,https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I recently purchased a solar charger maintainer for marine batteries however it's not a real charger of real low batteries.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



I'm not using alot of 12VDC but am starting to realize a second battery would allow more stuff to be powered w/out the start battery.like to avoid the open flames of propane this is why I like the induction hot plate and the deep fryer.

I haven't decided where to mount the generator probably the bow next to escape hatch would be the safest and only run w/ windows closed, I do plan a carbon monoxide sensor.

here's a couple images of gen. on the aft. deck I could place on dive plateform (DP isn't completed in this image but is completed now).
Thanks

Deep fryer on a 22 ft boat?
I see you standing at your galley.
I see another MB yahoo come rocketing by leaving you rocking in his wake.
I see 400+ degree hot oil pouring down the front of your pants.
I'll leave the rest to your imagination - but deep fried sausage might be in your immediate future.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Why not a small butane, propane, white gas or non-pressured alcohol stove?
Much simpler, lighter, more compact, more tolerant of the marine environment and cheaper.

Yikes, that is really a graphic I'd never want to see. I do believe his query assumes he judges conditions safe for deep frying though. Good point on the danger though.

what is MB? you should SEE the pivot fryer hangs from no chance of oil spilling near my wennie.

all these butane, propane, white gas or non-pressured alcohol stove have flames.

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

Most of those incidents linked in that article were fires from filling the generator with petrol, something that could just as easily happen when filling a petrol powered outboard, which probably 80% of the boats out there have for their tender.

Evidently the primary bullet point should be "use caution and common sense when dealing with any volatile energy source"

Re: Id like to setup a small galley

On the subject of live wells, you’ll be able to keep fish alive much longer if you pump water into the wells instead of just air. It takes more plumbing but if you’re trying to keep bait fish alive and active it’s worth it.
