Has anybody, especially the uk, ever used or had experience with a Windhunter system?

It was built in Great Britan. I removed it and am using the parts for different things. The system consists of a generator motor, hydraulic fluid logic unit, windvane, and hydraulic ram. The previous owner of my vessel spent a lot of money on it. I tried to contact the company, which is now out of business. I would be interested in your experiences with the prop that is towed, and how to get it on the boat again without killing yourself. I would also like to know different methods for mounting the wind generator. Interesting, but complex system. I have all the parts and could not sell it for three years. I contacted the company from their website and then the website disappeared windhunter.com

Thanks.
