I'm shocked -- shocked! SWWP is legend in this regard. Right in there with shopvac manufacturers -- wow, 6.5 hp from a simple 110V device, how DO they do it?

Might consider Ampair, also. Small swept area, but higher solidity than the AirX and a reputation for robustness. Frequently seen on ocean racing boats. As my home system installer wisely said, "The power curve of a broken turbine is flat." Rigorous axiom testing confirms:

Buccaneer18, Grainnia
SJ21, Diarmuid
Albin Ballad 30, Fionn
