Windmill on top of the mast? Answered
I'm rescuing an '72 all-wooden yacht (18ft) named Knights of Ni; the woodwork and painting are mostly done and I'm now busy with the electrics. It has a 12V system running of a car battery which is powered by a small solar cell and if necessary I can charge it on land.
I was wondering though, whether it is possible to mount a small windmill on top of the mast using for instance the van of a vacuum cleaner and a bike dynamo (or anything else not too big and heavy), and then running a wire through the mast to the battery.
I would be very grateful for your advice. If you want/need to see more pictures of the boat please give me a shout.
