Ampair microwind, microhydro, and small wind power systems. looks like a nice simple option.

Aquagen Aquagen Water Generators - also seems like a decent option.

The Red Baron had a good review in Power plucked from the air | Articles & Archives | Ocean Navigator: The magazine for long-distance offshore sailing and power voyaging but unfortunately seems that it may not have a reliable manufacturing future. Fourwinds Wind Generator WANTED

Marine Wind Generator Mounting Options does seem to still be selling them though.

HTH. Ben.

Donradcliffe. Any feedback on why about half of them failed?
