I am, beyond a shadow of a doubt, one of the least knowledgeable about boats on these forums so forgive my questions if they seem silly or obvious.
I am converting my boat to diesel, it has several things that need constant power. It has a refrigerator that can run on electric or gas, normal lights, radio, television, coffee maker and a few small electric items (clock radio and such).
I wanted a diesel generator so I could run a "Y" line off the main fuel tank but then discovered how expensive they are, ouch.
I have a nice generator that we used during power outages for our home that is more than capable of running everything on the boat. There is room in the engine bay and an exhaust port that I could run to the rear of the engine bay.
Can I use a standard generator while the boat is anchored? Are there any other concerns aside from proper venting?
Thanks for everyone's patience with my amatuer questions.
