I've used a wind generator
on a boat. In my case it was an "Ampair." We used it in conjunction with solar
panels to generate our "house" power.
I'm not sure I'd use it again. Well, maybe if I were going to be someplace with a lot of wind and no sun. Otherwise I'd probably stick with solar
panels. For me, even the "quiet" wind generator
made a bit too much noise, and of course on a boat you are usually looking for sheltered places to anchor. It did work very well though -- I can't complain about its actual functioning. And I'm not saying I would never buy one again.
You do have to make sure to mount it where no-one could accidentally put a hand in it.
Can I answer any specific questions?
