Tie Up With Generators Running

Recommended Posts

Are there any safety issues (carbon monoxide) or other when tied up with other boats and everyone is running their generator?

This past weekend tied up with a buddy where my generator was discharging on the port side and his discharging on the starboard side. 

We didn't realize this until tied and anchored, but basically the generators were throwing water on each other. Just didn't know if tied up running gens if there is anything to be careful about.

We both had blowers running and carbon monoxide detectors in the cabins.

I dont tie up with anyone but I see it all the time.

Large boats with their gennys going.

I would think you want them throwing water away from each other, not all the time possible.

If they are throwing water on each other that channel between the boats is full of fumes.
