    Do us all a favor and search for "Honda Generator" here on this site... very hot topic.

    Hopefully this thread will go no further.

    Rob, someone has to tell you so I guess I will....

    The majority on this forum do not recommend the use of portable generators on boats due to the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning as well as a host of other issues. However, there are some that regularly use portable generators and have never had an issue. As someone suggested, do a topic search for "Honda Generators" or "Portable Generators", open a beer or two and sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Joke or not it should be refuted so this forum is not seen as promoting the practice.

    I couldn't care less if one wants to do it, it just should not be promoted here.
