Grana has what appears to be - from what's left of the lables - a WindStream generator made by (or at least the controls were made by) Thermax.

The prop blew itself to pieces in a high wind when the unit tipped up (that's its override protection) and the prop banged into the backstay.

I can't find a trace of this unit on the net or in the cataloges I have but maybe someone knows. If not, this weekend I'll get some spruce and make a prop. It's a pretty simple constant pitch non airfoil design so how hard could it be? But I'd rather buy the thing if possible. Whatever, I'm loath to plunk down a grand or more for a new generator.

You're right, Ed, that's a pretty impressive search engine.

Just for interest's sake, I put in our company's name, Wooden Boat Fittings. First place went elsewhere, but we got the next *eleven* consecutive entries. Very pleasing. And it took something under less than half of no time at all to find them, too.

Interesting. I typed in wooden boat fittings and you were also first (as well as second, third, etc). I wonder why the difference?
