Genset selection and installation, a firsthand account

Charging these batteries will possibly require a genset. Choosing and installing one for a relatively small ship should be a careful process.
“The time had come to replace the Mase 8.0 genset that had served well for more than 12 years. As in the past when the Mase 8.0 was selected, the priorities were to find a unit that would fit in the available space, ensure that it would be at least as quiet as the Mase had been, and select a unit that would produce an adequate amount of electrical energy. The priority order reflects prior experience. Regardless of what else a genset may be able to do, if it is not quiet, it does not belong on the boat.”
