on my cat Lady Rover (ladyrover.jimdo.com) I have currently a 2kw petrol genset which runs, but produces way to much heat.
Even big blowers can not vent the small compartment enough (there is no other location on board where I can mount it).
I'd love to replace it with a watercooled system.
I only have LPG and petrol on board. Main propulsion
is via two Yamaha 9.9hp petrol outboards.
Replacing the genset with a watercooled diesel
is not an option.
The smallest watercooled genset systems I found, are diesel
based and have 3.8kw and are with 90+ kg to heavy.
Now I was wondering if anyone knows of a watercooled petrol genset with not more than 2kw.
Alternatively I was wondering if anyone knows of a successful fixed installation
of a petrol outboard
, driving exclusively a large alternator
(not for propulsion). This would be lightweight, watercooled & use fuel
I have already onboard.
The typical trickle charge coming of my propulsion outboard
provides way to little amps.
I could find neither when googeling a lot.
is a big issue too (anything above 1000€ is not really an option).
Thanks for your thoughts!
