Re: Hydro Genarator

No I don't have experience with Sailgen I believe it works and is better option than silent wind wind only generstor, but you can always dyi with under 1000 a hydro generator that can be used as an electric outboard as well so why bother ?

Re: Hydro Genarator

Anyone convert their freewheeling drive shaft to a hydro turbine?

You just need an outboard body, and an electric motor that can regenerate (around 200 euro) you remove the gas engine out on the electric and you are ready to go, by putting in the transform you can generate power .

If you are not into dyi sailgen is a good option .
