I was thinking about putting a genny in the boat and hooking it up to the shore power.

Should I is the question?

Are you looking to power the shore?

The boat has power via shore when docked. I was thinking about tying a generator into that circuit so I would have power out on the water.

I didn't think it was that confusing. I'm looking for guys that have done this and if they would do it again or folks that have power and could they go without it or does it become an awesome convenience

So you mean that you wanted to hook the output of the jenny to the main 110V breaker??

I think I have a Searay wiring diagram that I could scan ( have to dig it out) Not positive at this point if it includes the particulars on a jenny though.
PM an email address if you want me to scan and send it


Although I wouldn't recomend it, I have once put a small jenny on the swimplatform and plugged the output into the 110V outlet topside. It backfed power to the whole boat using a double male cord.

LJrubi@gmail.com is the email addy. The wire diagram would be cool regardless if I end up buying a genny or not

From what I'm reading it seems like a huge hassel if the boat didn't come with one from the factory.
