But, to be clear, summer time in the Bahamas, there is little wind....and almost none in anchorages....(except when there is a tropical disturbance!!!)

And, fall / winter / spring, there's wind and reasonable temps....so no need for air cond....


Bottom line:
YES, running a genset and air cond (even quiet ones) all night, is a VERY BAD idea in anchorages with other boats!!!


Sorry if that's not the answer you're looking for...
Fair winds..

I agree, if you want all that get a hotel room or get a slip. Do you carry a AC when you go camping.?

I only run my AC when on shore power.
