Post by bemexem » Sat Feb 24, 2018 5:48 pm

I'm trying to determent where would be the best spot to install wind turbine and the best method on 1975 F30
Does anyone have experience with such projects or better yet if someone got pictures for me to take a look at.

Wind Generator ? Don't see many on power boats , maybe on a few trawlers . High on the stern ? O on the Cabin top or fly bridge if you have one Needs to be well out of reach so no one could be hurt by it spinning . I need to ask why would you need or want one on this type boat ?

He ain’t the only one.

When I used to consume a lot of rum, I too thought about putting a wind turbine on an F30! Those turbines are not that expensive.

Now sans rum, solar panels are the way to go!!!!!
