I want to install my home generator outside where a 100 sub pnl exist but there is a vent from our Down Draft cook top right next to where the gen would be ....does the CO drift up ? Or is it heavy and falls ? the vent tub goes horizontal about 10 feet then up about 5 feet .... the vent has a flapper on it but dont want ANY chances

That's why we use that Mace Diesel pain-in-the-ass. Diesel won't kill you.

Also, the fume detectors aren't an option according to CG books.

This week will tell..... Call me anytime.

BTW, bought a 21 Malibu Wakesetter for my personal boat. Had that puppy up to 44.5 mph this weekend. Damn fast!

Kids caught some serious air. We did "ollies, backside, toeside, heelside, double-ups" all weekend.

Not quite sure what they all were but I think I had fun.All I know is I am running faster than Kevin and Judy.....

You gotta know Kevin still won't push that throttle past 3500rpms, for optimum fuel mileage. We all need to get together once I get my **** together and go on a poker run, maybe later on in the year to the keys.

What a terrible story. My brother was very good friends with these people and was actually supposed to meet them by boat last weekend. They were on a 26 Chaparral and had a portable Honda generator on the swim platform to power their A/C. They were actually rafted off to several other boats for the night and had used the generator in this way numerous times before. He said they were great people, no children and were about to build a new home on the lake. The viewing is tonight, funeral tomorrow. Important lesson to make sure your co2 monitors are working.
