Build your own wind turbine.

Build a small wind turbine, then build it bigger and bigger.
Put on a generator to get free electricity.

Use this blueprint for private use.

LR Vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWT)

If you want, you can mount the wind-discs above each other on the same drive shaft.
You can also place multiple axes next to each other and connect them together.
I start by using a 1 meter standard 12 M threaded rod, 12 mm nuts and 12 mm ball bearings.
Common woodwork may be used in tests.
A small problem seems to be what kind of generator I'm going to use, thinking of a regular car generator. The problem is that it starts charging at a quite high speed so I have to change the gear.

Keep the weight down to just that it holds together, and learn how to maneuver the vessel.
Then it could be possible to sail with?

You can not sail against the wind but cross like a regular sailboat.
