The current rage among cruisers here in the NW Caribbean is the small 'suitcase' Honda EU2000 (or 1000's).

It's not available in the states but I have a Honda EX1000 and love it. It's not cased in plastic like the suitcase Hondas. Rather it's metal and seems more 'industrial stength' than the portable suitcase Hondas. I know I've even run mine in the rain which is not recommended with the suitcase Hondas.

re: being noisy, annoying neighbors. The Hondas are REALLY quiet. I can hardly hear mine until I get right up to the boat and the suitcase Hondas are even quieter.

re: Carbon Monoxide. Certainly something to be aware of. I run mine on the cabin top forward of the mast, behind the forehatch. When at anchor there is most likely a fair breeze blowin so I don't really worry about it.

Personally, I'd think a diesel genset located in the stern would be too heavy.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
