If I were to do it again, I would have gone with a Nextgen or other built in generator at more than twice the price
but the portables were to get me by until I can finish outfitting the boat for cruising, with Solar
being what I want to end up with. Goal is to have a Honda
as a back-up only.
They are actually quite a hassle, hauling them into and out of the lazarette and now down the swim ladder into the Dinghy
, plus they are only useable at anchor
really limits their usefulness. I've rigged a hose for them to draw fuel
from the dinghy's fuel tank
is the only up-side.
