If I tell people I build offshore windfarms she rolls her eyes, does a 180 and heads for the hills.
Shame about not doing biscuits, as I was going to ask for a box of Tunnocks as a thank you for running the Marine Traffic base station :o)
Lots of on-shore wind generation here in Orkney - including my 5kw one that powers the MT base station, as well as making 22,000kw pa. And people say wind doesn't work. As you may know, here in Orkney we can't export any more power due to lack of cable capacity.
As you may have picked up, the renewable industry here is one of the reasons why we do well with marine traffic coverage, and a thriving community.
So no eye rolling here - many here would have you as a messiah with doing off-shore, compared to on-shore :o)
Just wish electric outboards were better as I'd be quids in...
