Re: Alternative to Solar

Considering the fact of being at anchor, I wonder if the pull of the boat against the anchor could somehow be harnessed as a boat continually swings in the wind. Considering the tremendous current that runs through some spots like the Ft. Matanzas anchorage and others on the ICW or on the Hudson River makes me think that there must be a way to convert some of that energy while anchored.
