Re: Towed Generator that We Really Need
1) prop size was optimized for pushing the boat, not turning a shaft. Pitch, shape, are backwards from what you really need for a water turbine
How about using a the small outboard system of reverse, prop leading for generator turn 180* bypass charge controls, motor away
Should be better then dragging it the other way, you would still need to compimise on the prop some.
