Re: what product do you wish existed?

A wave activated builge pump, i know the Danish have one but exspenive
and i think it only works at the dock. We need one that will work on the hook,something you can simply attach a fender to that will operate a small piston, i always worry about batteries dying.

This is doable, use an old outboard lower end with an oversize prop, Attach a dc perm magnet motor to the drive shaft, run wires to regulator, charge controller. Bingo.
