[Amel] Re: Maramu best generator location


Thanks for your comments and suggestions.  I have decided to put it at the bottom of the port locker.   It is an alternator/watermaker combo and will be helpful for cruising (I hope).

We once saw an installation where a small marine generator was installed in the engine room, in a cut out in the aft section of the deep cockpit storage. It fit petty well, but I agree with Dave, that if you are not cruising constantly, solar panels, a good wind generator and a backup gasoline portable generator is a good solution and that installed units can be a hassle, judging by comments and experiences from fellow boaters.

A lot of us on the west coast have chosen to carry one (or two in some cases) of those portable Honda generators rather than deal with the expense and hassle of a conventional marine generator. Our Maramu does not have a generator and I can't see any really good spot for it. The Honda takes up little space and some people have made a rail mount for it.

Here's an economical 30 gph watermaker that is designed to work with the Honda generator - http://cruiserowaterandpower.com/WaterMakers.html

I am preparing to install a generator/watermaker and would appreciate any input on the best location on a Maramu. my preference would be the engine room if it will fit. second choice is the port storage locker. What have other Maramu owners done? Do any of you have pictures youy can send or post.

Thanks for your assistance.
