different angle then, who loves their wind gen...

heres the question - but bear with me - I put up a new(ish) fully battened main recently, now when im sailing i look up at the perfect shape and inherent strength of that sail and I love that thing for doing what it does so well and faithfully - who looks at their wind generator and feels the same sort of thing - and which wind generator is it...

I dream of the” KISS” Wind Gen--she puts out, day or night & keeps quiet with only a purr – 6 years and has done everything I could have expected, no maintains..so far

i used to love the 4 winds when I returned to the boat and the thing was whirring away cranking in the amps. I used to hate it when I had to get up there near it when the wind piped up too much.

KISS KISS KISS

Her whirring, graceful turns as she faithfully supplies all the power we need, and has done for the past 12 years now.

How I love my KISS.

I love our airbreeze, it turns off when the wind is too high or the batteries are full........but next time, after having heard a KISS recently, it'll be KISS.
