Iguanas/Bitter Guana Cay

After we finished our errands in Staniel Cay this morning we sailed a short distance to Bitter Guana Cay. We wanted to see the endangered iguanas that live on the island. Those iguanas are big! Bigger than a small dog, in fact. We took a piece of bread with us to feed them but decided not to do it when we saw one aggressively chasing another. I had visions of all of the iguanas running after me and my bread. We walked along the beach to what looked like a cave under a sand cliff. When we got there an iguana came strolling out so we didn't go inside.

  1. Hi Bev and George,

    I'm about to order a Honda EU2000i Parallel generator too to charge on our Hanse 415. Did you figure out the error light?

    1. Hugh,
      As a electrician by trade,I can probably shed some light on this fault. I will post on your Blog page. I used a Honda 2000Eu to keep my batteries charged for 3 months with no problem. My boat is a Catalina 42MKII #547. Since it is older, it does not have all the ground fault sensors that the newer boats have. I have found since it is an inverter, the fault is usually a "No Ground" or "Missing Ground" fault. The GFIC will still function on the boat since it monitors the hot and neutral only. I have seen this on other boats using shore power and generators. Shoot me an email if we need to discuss further at

    2. Wow, thanks Jim. I am at the laundromat now and I am going to forward your message to George who is on the boat. It sounds as if it is still safe to use. We were afraid we would fry our electronics and really be in trouble!

  2. Hi Bev,
    The EU2000I is an inverter intended for electronics. It provides a stable volts and hertz. What was the alarm you had or error light?

    1. It is a "shore power" light. Green means ok, red means reverse polarity and flashing means error. We get the flashing light. I have asked my husband, George, to email you.
