I have been reading the threads on CC vs. sport fishers, and have seen a few pics of boats with potable generators strapped to the bow. Is carrying a portable onboard a good idea?? My boat had a 3.8 Kw Kholer that seized about 9 years ago. The owner at the time removed it and put a 155 gallon fuel tank in is place. Their has been times I would have liked to have the generator back but really need to extra fuel tank. Is a portable safe to run? What about carrying a gas can to fill it?
