I cannot imagine any taboo in these things but your gen would only work at its maximum when the boat is at anchor
and facing into the wind
Any other situation would give you seriously reduced performance.
Your output while sailing would be 70% of maximum, at best, when you are reaching fairly hard (45 degrees to apparent wind) and 0% (zero) with the apparent wind
on the beam.
