Well, what I don't understand is why are people messing with LPG and gasoline generators, that aren't even designed or approved for marine
use, on cruising yachts? You already have diesel fuel
on the boat, which is a relatively safe fuel
and available at just about every port on earth (although at some of them you might have to run it through a few strainers and filters to get the seaweed and scum out of it).
Spark ignition engines are not exceedingly efficient devices. Neither are diesels, but they're one heck of a lot better than Otto Cycle, and one heck of a lot more reliable. All it takes is to douse your EU2000 with a wave and it's done in saltwater. It will start to corrode internally and turn into junk in short order. Especially that neat little three-phase neo magnet generator
they got in there that feeds the input to the inverter
. That generator
is not protected from the salt environment
at all and neos are really susceptible to corrosion
I dunno, man. If you're going to spend money
on something, why not do it right?
