Re: Best wind generator?

If you are very worried about what your life depends on and weŽre talking the carribean anyway, personally iŽd go for solar. No moving parts FTW !

What route are you gonna take from texas to panama btw ? As far as i know there is no ocean between those 2, only a puny little bit of caribean sea and gulf of mexico

Re: Best wind generator?

yes! solar in the Caribbean! Especially because one of the definitions of a good anchorage is one without a lot of wind. And, I might add, one where you dont have to anchor next to somebody with a pesky wind gen.
