Hrmm. Another boat
? That seems like a huge expense. That is unless it's easy to load and unload and you've got a place to keep it when you're out playing with other toys.
A wind generator
. That's interesting too. I've stood 10 feet from some around there and didn't notice them running other than the shadow going by. It was nowhere near 20knts outside. It seems that the rigging
makes far more noise
than most I've been around. I've read the vertical ones are noisy and have seen one tied up while someone was away. Pretty rude to go on another persons boat and tie up the power generator
because it was noisy.
I guess I'm a bad neighbor. I'd get the generator
and get some power on those days solar
wasn't enough. The newer models have better brakes on them (although I hear none of them are perfect and you have to secure them). Another boat is an expense that you can't use at the same time. You can only skipper
one at a time right? Towns behind bridges are for cars. Sailing is meant for the outside and where the bigger bridges are. I guess there's a following for gunkholing too.
I guess the best question to ask is what is going to bring me more pleasure and can I picture myself with one over the other. That's where the answer has to be with any purchase
. Let some other guy enjoy that other boat is my opinion. Spend a little more than the bottom of the line and get a quiet generator so you can enjoy it too. FWIW
