    Gives a new slant to the term "choppy" conditions. I guess putting it behind a grille would wreck the effectiveness, but it looks like a real hazard to day-dreamers.

    We had a well off fellow here in Minnesota a little to eager to hop off a fly in bush plane. He died when he slipped and fell into the prop.

    Wind generators have a place. They make great racket in a nice and otherwise quiet marina.

    Other than dangerous and loud; they are also rather spendy. The massive power producing windmills have in common their massiveness. The smaller ones on boats seem to be a bit of a help and nuisance both. Could be a lifesaver.

    Don't want one.

    Welcome to the forum Gravio. Could you please post in English though. We want to keep all posts in one common language and the language of this forum is English. Thanks very much.
