Sorry about the coughing fit.
If you were asking about the the SailFan (TM) technology, I must have forgotten to mention that it is self-propelled, so does not require an external power source. That is one of the many beauties of the product.
Also, for those concerned about noise, the SailFan's foils have been re-engineeered so they are virtually inaudible. You'll only hear the wind in the sails and the water on the hull as you point up to within a few degrees of true, and pass all the other boats that are slogging to windward.

We have boats with giant fans on them. They are called "Air Boats" and they operate in the swamp lands of Florida, Alabamba, Mississippi and Louisiana.
They are a bit top heavy and you have to be careful when making a turn with them..
Note: These fans are mounted on the back of the boat and blow aft.

Started laughing so hard it induced a coughing jag that resulted in an asthma attack. Now that I have that under control (you gotta love drugs), I have a question:
Where do you plug in the fan?

Seems they would like to see if our SailFan technology can finally get their boats moving under wind power alone.
We appreciate everyone's patience as we work through this backlog. Please watch for updates in coming months.
