Plus they were trying to get that boat as fast as they could on 500's. they did a ton of setup work on that boat and that was the lightest gen. they could find when they did it. Thats what Mark the first owner told me when we were rafted up together one day.

Diesels run with an excess of air in the fuel mixture so they produce co2 instead of co like a gasoline engine. Almost impossible to get co poisoning with a diesel generator.
