Honda Generator Called Into Action

13 August 2008 | Beaufort, SC
It's Raining Again After The Short Break
I bought this 2000 watt Honda Generator for Singmeaway, the Catalina 25. That boat had no internal charging system and the (car) battieries that ran its electrics needed to be taken home to the charger after a day of sailing. That didn't work for cruising in Mexico so I got a high quality gas generator (there were certainly less expensive generators). It came off of Singmeaway when I brought that boat to Phoenix to sell in early May. I put the generator in a compartment in the Rebounder and drove it all the way across the US (from San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico mind you) and stored it on Tropical Dreamer in case it was needed. It's needed already. Since one of the house batteries has died, I can only go a day or so without charging. The Honda Gen has performed well. I'll turn it on again after dinner tonight.
