Keep in mind these boats were designed to lay down on shore if need be, they should be mostly okiedokie, might be a bit bruised and battered but shouldn't be too awful

These pictures are surreal!

This picture has me convinced, that if I do get a home generator, it will be propane fueled. I live in an area that seems to get electricity back up and running fairly quickly. But if a generator is needed for any extended period of time, you're going to have to go out and get gas with everyone else in the area within short order.

My neighbor has a 20KW natural gas generator system hooked up. It operates automatically and works great.
I didn't bother with a generator for Sandy. My neighbors who did run portable gennys mostly had issues with not getting enough fuel in advance so they really weren't of much use.
I got power back Saturday night, all of my neighbors south of me are still out today. Still a mess....

I'm not here to post bash or anything... I also believe something is better than nothing... I was considering the same here on Cape Cod. The only thing that worried me is I heard that they shut down large sections of NG pipeline. Granted Propane with a tank is a way to go too but wonder what issues can come with getting that...

they did, and the best way around that is tri-gas genset. Gasoline, propane and NG. Propane is very easy to get, even now

Figured Dual fuel... but dont you have to change out the nozzles on the injectors or something? I do not think it is a simple flip?

Granted I know larger engines can do it, I thought these home generators cannot. Again I like to be educated a little but and tried researching some of this on the internet but not to easy...

Good to know... All of this, thanks...

Powerland portable gas generator, propane generator, natural gas generator, tri fuel generator


my neighbor behind me has this brand, he ran his 24 hours a day for 8 days, without a hickup. He took the hookup from his natural gas grill, and screwed it into the genset, turned on the valve two cranks and was running

like they need power to pump the propane into your tank ?? I've got at least 3 Aladdin kerosene lamps here at the house, they burn about as bright as a 60watt bulb and put out quite a bit of heat. For backup heat i have a wood stove downstairs and a gas "wood stove" in the living room that doesn't need power to make it run. I've also got a couple of camp stoves both propane & fuel and some smaller lightweight stoves i used for sheep hunting. About 2 weeks worth of Mountain House freeze dried food and a few cases of canned food. I'm on a well for water so as long as i can run my generator i think i could pump water but i do have a camp style water filter if i have to melt ice or pump water to drink.

I've got 3 of these old Aladdin blue flame heaters also, always looking for more of them for parts.
