I recently read an article about shaft mounting an alternator
to pick up power from the way on the vessel.
I am planning extended trips in an old (but well loved ) Nicholson 32. Obviously not the fastest yacht over the line she is ideal for me as a heavy cruiser. 'Salty" sports a three bladed prop that I have no idea as yet if ti will turn as I sail. So advice on what one needs to do to get the shaft to spin would be good.
Assuming this can be achieved I am told there are now low rev alternators that can be used to generates power as one sails
. If this is true I dont see the drag as an issue as the prop sits down there anyway and as far as I know does not turn at the present. So.....I find I get much more information from people if rather than asking a specific question I start with ......Any thoughts. All responses gratefully received.
