Your assumption is silly as generators years ago were more noisy now. You I assume fall into that age group were you have forgotten your time out having fun and using your boat . Like most cruisers they are of the older generation. When looked there little peace and quite and have a God complex of it was better in my day . Frankly we are bored of hearing it was better in my day .
If you want peace and quite go to a retirement
village and allow those to live
How many on here are telling people to use a generator how many are telling people not to do it because it might upset someone
Honestly people move on with your attitude of this if someone wants to run their generator so what. What exactly are you going g to do about it qoute your golden rules based on you age because it was better in my day attitude
And any assumption of my generation to being social and courtesy to people and helpful . I can guarantee that I am more laid back more tolerant to others and will drop everything to aid a fellow sailor even though they have a Honda generator..(I was brought up to respect all)
Again the misconception that older retired people have more empathy. Not true in all my cruising the retired God complex are the worst . They Google
at you as you anchor . They have an opinion of your boat. They do not like your kids
making noise and god forbid you are 100m of them passing in your dinghy
So do not assume anything about anyone this again is the problem of those cruisers who think they are better and above the rest enjoying the same spot.
