I bought mine (one of the best things I have ever bought) on a Power Buy off the Hulltruth.com.(do a search and youcan find it)I think I paid right at $800 and it included the 12v charger cables and cover with free shipping. I use it on overnight trips on a Contender 25 as well as for odds and ends all around the house and barn.

PM Generator Man. His name is Brandon. He deals with Honda, and he raves about them. You can generally find him posting in the diving section. He would be an excellent resource for this question.

If you can find a genuine Honda at that price, hell yea. Make sure to register it through Honda (when the sale is complete)for the warranty and its not something refurbished. I have had a case with that. Warranty was in someone else name an all and reported stolen. There are alot of shysters out there. BE careful of online sales. When they tell you they registered it for you, double check.

I have repaired alot of 2kw's and 3kw euinverters. Nice setup. I wouldadvise getting someone to getit ready for salt water too.Hint hint.....oh yeah I can do that too.

Thanks for the offer Brandon but I'm over here in Mobile.

http://www.wisesales.com/

This is the company that's that's got them. I found it on The Hull Truth last year. They were adv. a power buy ( very good price)and alot of the member got in on it.

As for the Saltwater set up only thing I'm going to to do is change out any screws or bolts with SS that might become and issue and put Never Seize on the the threads of the others.

Wash it off after I go and it stays in a garage the rest of the time.

BTW If gotten over 17 yrs out of my old Generac and it's all metal.(It's had a few touch on the paint in it's live time)

I will take any suggestion you have ( never to old to learn something new)

I use Amsoil MP. I have put a fine coat on the inside and itseems to prevent alot of salt damage.Its the best I have found. Your right though changing out the screws with ss is another. I have seen some of the 2k eu's that stay onboard sail boats. They can get pretty nasty. Im certified in Honda and do all the warranty work they send. It use to be just a few that did it in P'cola and then Honda opened it up. There is like four or five in town now.Have any questions just shoot me a PM.
