" a home made blade out of a 2 x 4 gives him a steady 2 amps. "
I have to wonder how the time and effort, and skills, to whittle a perfectly good 2x4 down to a propellor blade, compare to just peddling a crankset generator to get those same two amps?

Brent Swain has a home mede wind generator on his boat. Works very well. e-bay generator and a home made blade out of a 2 x 4 gives him a steady 2 amps. He has to strap the prop on occasion so he doesn't over charge...
His book has several - DIY projects for budget wise boaters. do a web search for Brent swain - his book is called origami boatbuilding.

I actually make my own, using a secret formula of ink. I can print them in my inkjet printer... I'm hoping to perfect the formulation of a new "solar cell" paint, so that I can make large panels more easily...

Hey, SD, haven't you ever built your own solar cells? You get a roll of aluminum foil (the heavy duty stuff) and then you plant a whole batch of spinach, which will harvest the selenium in your soil, and then you start to cook it down. Send me $49.95 and I'll give you the rest of the information, its real easy!
If your local soil is deficient in selenium, don't worry, we can use bamboo to extract silicon instead.
