GEN­ER­A­TOR NO-NO

Canal Boat - - Back Cabin: - R SY­MONS, via email

QWe want to buy a petrol gen­er­a­tor for our boat; as it will be new, when it’s not in use, can I store it in­side where we have a util­ity area with stor­age? TONY REPLIES... Both petrol and a gen­er­a­tor should be stored so that any fumes fall over­board rather than into the bilge. This means on the roof (not ideal), on a rear deck as long as there is an up­stand be­tween that area and en­try to the bilge, or in a sealed locker vented over­board sim­i­lar to a gas locker as de­fined in the BSS.
