<DIV><FONT size=2>I have a generator on my outboard which charges my battery and 
runs all electrical equipment such as radios, autopilot, lights. I am not 
familiar with &quot;thrusters&quot; or how much power they require. If they can 
replace the outboard and power a generator too, why not? But a bank of batteries 
sounds pretty heavy. However, in place of an outboard, maybe the battery weight 
is not significant when it comes to racing. And maybe you are more of a cruiser 
than a racer and weight is no problem.</FONT></DIV>

<DIV><FONT color=#000000 size=2>Does anyone use a generator on board their 
SJ23?&nbsp; Is this a practical idea given the size of the boat?&nbsp; It seems 
possible to me.&nbsp; I thought that a generator with a bank of batteries (2-3) 
would suffice to drive all the items that I want to install to include an 
electric &quot;thruster&quot; to replace the outboard motor I'm using right 
now.&nbsp; My reasoning is that the outboard is noisy anyway, why not be making 
energy while running an engine.&nbsp; My only concern right now is who makes 
generators small and quiet enough to suit my needs on the SJ23.&nbsp; Any 
comments would be greatly appreciated.</FONT></DIV>
