Can't seem to edit the broken link here so here it is again:

I have been watching with interest, the different comments about wind generators on this site. Back in 2008 we installed on our SM a Rutland 913 at a cost of about $1800.00 AUD incl SS stand secured to the port quarter SS railing. To be honest, I regard this form of accessory a total waste of time and expense. With the availability of better solar panels available, that would be the path I would consider to go down. The other alternative of course is just to burn diesel.

I recently read an article at and I suggest those who still want to go down that path read it first. Bear in mind, I believe the test results conducted were relating to a 12volt DC, since our vessels are 24volt DC, divide the results in half. Also, our battery banks are 400AH plus, deduct your average consumption and what do you get????
