    If You Guy's Get Together And Buy At Least Five Or More, We Cane Sell'm At $845-$850 Range. Retail Is $1100
    Let Me Know. Shipping May Outway Savings.

    You Can Put Them In The Engine Hatch, But I Highly Recomend Running Your Blower, And Co2 Detectors.
    Sure Makes Alot More Sense Than The $6000 Gens That Are In Some Boats.

    Good Thing About The Honda Eu Model Is That You Can Link Them Together And Make More Power.

    No, I do not run the blower, believe it not, it is louder than the generator. I do crack open the engine hatch at night about 1 foot, it does get a little warm in there closed up. I do have plenty of air vents on my engine compartment.

    Has anyone had any experience with the 1000 Honda? I plan on powering a 5000 btu window unit with it for about 4-5 hours at night.

    If you want the specs pm me.
    It powers my 10k A/C and battery charger.
    Recently, our new dock and lift was installed, but it took a few weeks to get the electricity connected. In that time I used my Honda to raise the lift. While I was not using the generator, I stored it under the bow cushions (Envision 32 Intruder), or, under the engine hatch (I just kept it under the hatch for more secure storage-I never started the engine with it under there).

    I was really suprised at the amount of gas fumes that I could smell whenever I opened either compartment after the generator had been in there. Don't get me wrong, I would be all for a more permanent mount for it, but I would be afraid of the "big boom" storing it under the hatch. I also don't believe that any insurance company would be overly impressed.

    Your answer to the exhast is the best that I have seen, though.

    Haven't used the 1000, I have the 2000. If it will run the A/C it will be stressed doing so. The 2000's barely get the 10K BTU units started. (Compressor kicking in really draws some amps)

    I seriously doubt you will be able to get that a/c unit started with a Eu1000. They are comparable to a average size home refrigerator and it won't run it.

    My Mermaid 6500Btu unit manual says it will run off the Honda 1000 gen.
