I am a new member
here and this is my first of what, I am sure, will be many questions
I have seen several threads here talking about the 'domestic' type Honda
generators and yet the trade
always says you should have a fully marinised one (Westerbeke or equivalent).
I have used the domestic ones ashore for many years with generally good performance - including some of the chinese efforts.
I am refurbishing a 50 ft ketch
and will be asking it to cross the Atlantic. I will have 4 30watt solar panels
plus the alternators on the engine
for the battery
I anticipate several (many) weeks in port or anchor
waiting for weather
windows etc and the boat
is equiped with Cruiseair AC plus all the usual freezer
, microwave, navigation equipment
What are your feelings on the genset type to get. Money
is always an issue but safety
I look forward to your comments.
