Re: [Amel] Power generator

Howard, we have a Super wind generator on top of the mizzen and never hear a thing. Paul, what brand do you have?, I wonder if it makes a difference. The superwind has blades that feather in strong winds so that peak revolutions are controlled and we have no concerns even in gales.

Yes we saw you come into Francis Bay
When we mounted the wind generator on the mizzen we used a thick piece of rubber to dampen the vibration. We still can hear the wind generator when it is working in winds above 15 knots. It can be bothersome but it also alerts us to when we are experiencing high winds to check our position.
