The gen set should be no problem, no rewiring etc, nearly all gen sets have a set of connectors “strapped for 220 and or 110” . they are connector bars on screw terminals. Easy to do, but sometimes not easy to understand the proper connections. As for 50 vs 60 hz most 50 hz gen sets spin at 1500 rpm
, and 60 hz spin at 1800 rpm
, just have to adjust the governor. It is really not a problem. Just be aware some of the gear
on the boat may be 50 hz.
As for the trip, well, once through Panama
I would suggest you work north enjoying Costa Rica
until you are tired of going against the wind
, then head
, enjoy the sights, then north a bit until you get some westerlies and head
for Cape Scott, and then if you can Cape Flattery. The ride out to Hawaii
is pretty easy, the trip from there to coast can have a few days of a bit of wind
, but by then you should be pretty well up dealing with it. It is not a bad trip, it is sailing.
Have fun, don’t be afraid of adventure, it is life.
