Opinions of ARI Wind Generators?

Hi all;

In my research on wind generators, I came across these folks, in Manassas VA:

Wind Turbine | Wind Generator | Wind Power

here is the info on the model that may work for boats:

Start up Wind Speed (mph / m/s): 5 / 2.3
Incision Wind Speed (mph / m/s): 6.5 / 3
Rated Wind Speed (mph / m/s): 26 / 12
Survival Wind Speed (mph / m/s): 76 / 35
Rated Power (W): 450
Maximum Power (W): 600
Blade Diameter (ft/ m): 4.6 / 1.4
Rated Voltage (V): 12 / 24 / 48
Number of Blades: 3
Material of blades: Fiberglass reinforced composite
Alternator: Permanent magnet brushless
Charge controller: Hybrid solar-wind controller, charging LED display
Over-speed protection: Aerodynamic effects of the blades and electromagnetic brake
Over-current protection: Electromagnetic brake


There is an ebay seller that claims to have a marinized version, but I see no mention about this on the website. It includes a charge controller that also has inputs for Solar, this interests me.

Anybody see one of these or have any comments? I have a call into them, waiting for a call back, so I can ask questions.

Chris
