Re: Does One Need a Generator and/or AC

get a honda or yamaha 2000w for other than a/c. if you find you need ac for a few nights go buy a $100 window unit at home depot and place in companionway. You will find many uses for honda/yamaha gen, ac will just be "frost"ing on the cake.

Re: Does One Need a Generator and/or AC

We have two AC units and a 7KW diesel generator on our 41' ketch. At the marina dock and while working we find the AC essential and used with shore power. The generator is less important, but a great luxury at times while we are off the dock. We would not miss either of them in the Bahamas or further south while living on the hook.

Take care and joy, Aythya crew
