When contemplating a new build FPB the discussions around inverters, gensets and get home engines were interesting. When in NZ we talked with the folks in Whangerei about various subtleties of these combinations. Each prospective owner had a slightly different take on the various combinations.

Given Steve's decade plus of many FPBs I'd guess you've got his current thinking based upon field experience? As I recall he removed his genset from his big sailboat. But, his first FPB Windhorse came with a genset I believe.

Your clean sheet build is to be applauded and presents great reading on boat building 101. Along with Peter's posts over the years lots to learn on TF for the inquisitive.
