Hi all,

 

we made a mistake purchasing online and we got an AIR 40 wind gen instead of an AIR breeze. There is 200$ between the two and obviously the main difference is that AIR40 is intended for land use while the AIRbreeze is marine grade. AIR breeze is corrosion resistant, aircraft quality paint with a marine grade O-ring seal and stainless steel fasteners. For the rest they are are the same exact generator

 

I wonder if with a touch of good paint and stainless steel fasteners the AIR 40 is going to do the job. Any opinion about it?

I bought my old Air 303 unpainted for a big savings and sanded, primed and painted it myself for a substantial savings. It had the o-ring and SS fastenings.

Call the manufacturer - Ask what the difference is between the units (in totality) - make a laundry list, order those parts to replace , and give her a fresh awlgrip paint job and go sailing :)

The Air40 is already anodized aluminum, that usually doesn't need any painting. I am more worried about the O-Ring, but even a land wind generator should be waterproof in case of rain. Thanks for the suggestions I will try to track down the different parts involved :)
