Ferris W200 Water and Wind Generator

My boats power strategy was to never start the engine to charge the battery banks. When passage making the water generator would produce 10/12 amps, this really worked well, when crossing the Atlantic 4-days out the engine died and we pressed on another 22-day and produced more power than we could use.

At anchor with the single blade (very quiet) "rig mount" wind would consistantly provide 8/10Amps depending on wind speed.

Along with the W200 water/wind kit comes a complete set of spares; 100' torque line, high speed spinner W/2-weights, 2nd generator, bearings/brushes kit, retrive funnel, and modified wind blade. Current new cost $3400 asking $1400

Check out ferrispowerproducts.com for detail data.
