Not trying to ruin the project, but there is a reason diff types of gen's are made. It's all about safety and with gasoline engines, safety is number one.
I'm speaking from several years of experience having owned a very large marina and done everything from a tune up to a $1MM repair on Dave Thomas' Sea Ray 680SS.
Personally, I wouldn't go near that with a 300' pole. Better check with your insurance too.........................???

I own a Honda 2000i generator. Nice and light. Quiet. But not designed to be run in a closed space. I have two questions for you. How did you determine the temperature of the exhaust gas? And, are you sure a 2000 watt generator, rated at 16 amps max, can run a 10000 btu ac unit? And other accessories?
I started a deck railing ON FIRE by running the EXACT same generator you have too close to the ballusters. And this was outside. I'm assuming that it takes more than 180 degrees to start wood ON FIRE. And, I was running the geni in the Eco throttle mode, which is idling most of the time. Your generator is going to be at MAX while the ac is on. I think that silicone hose is going to melt.
I'm not trying to be a dickhead, but I'm really worried about this exhaust thing. I'm telling you straight up, the fire on the deck scared the pants of me. I couldn't believe it.
Good luck and please be safe!
You would have been better off and safer just running the generator on the swim platform, with a heavy gauge pigtail cord, since you're never running it while underway. Why go through all the hassle and the risk?
well if anything ever does happen and you file a claim with insurance and they find that was the cause....kiss the boat goodbuy cause they aint gonna pay with NON marine items onboard!
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
That looks way to dangerous for a man with a new baby. I think you should ship the boat out here to me and I will test it for a few years for you. Free of charge even.
I have other ideas about the exhaust too, thinking you could use a "venturi" set up to mix the (hot) exhaust gases with cooler air before it exits.
