Hello quick question, with those of you that currently are using a honda 2000i how are you hooking it up to your boat? Thanks in advance.
We had a pretty extensive conversation about this on the "old" RBO website. If my memory serves me, the really small honda generators can be linked together with a cordset that honda makes to double the power - great for stsrt-up surges. As well, Yahama makes a special small generetor to handle start-up surges. I think it was a 2400.

As I mentioned on the old RBO when we talked a lot about this issue, the Hondas are so quiet you can hardly hear them, they have great cable hook-up options and Honda used to even have a cable to parallel their small units for big jobs. They sure have it right. Also Yamaha made a super small unit with auto surge start. They're both VERY quiet. My friend went to the two dealers and had them start them up the run them under load (he brought a 1200w electric heater with him). He found the Honda the quietest. When I heard it running at his house (it wasn't at midnight) but it sure was quiet I wasn't even sure that it was on at first. Good Luck! MT
All I've wanted was to just have fun.
