A guy who solo circumnavigated a PSC Orion towed the one that I posted. In four years he never lost a fish.

sailingdog Some of the wind generators can also be used as water generators, by lowering the tower and switching the blades. Duogen comes to mind as one brand.

Towed Alternator?

Anybody ever use one of these things?
I came across the drawing in Modern Boat Maintenance, edited by Bo Streiffert and originally published in Sweden by Johnston Co-Editions, Gothenburg. The book makes no mention of any commercial outlet.
Seems to me it'd be pretty efficient on a (fast) multihull.
