I had a gimbaled towed water generator
that I used a few times sailing across the Pacific on my catamaran
. I did not use it that much because it was a hassle to set up,and the towing line had lots of twists/hockles in it with very little use. The towing line was very stiff, and it was the right line that came with the generator
, but it still got lots of twists. I don't know what the problem was, and I just gave up trying to use it. I guess if I did not have plenty of power from other sources, I would have persisted in my efforts to work out the problem.
