What's the point?
Wind gen's don't cost any boat speed, don't get hit by hungry sharks, don't get their cabling snarled up requiring retrieval/redeploying, don't generally get lost by breaking off, work underway and at anchor etc.. and if you got the wind to sail, you've got the wind to make amps.
Okay, some are a bit noisy, but the only silent electrical power generator is solar (my choice, with wind as alternative).
