      I think there's some around but you'll have to fish around for it.

          A turbine powered by the tide and you can run it right there, plus no need for a coolent pump.

          bring a spear gun to catch lunch too.

                I hate to think of all the mills and lathes that are laying on the ocean floor along with every thing that went with them. Material and humans.
                Don\'t ask me to do a dam thing, I\'m retired.

                      Dave,
                      Looks to be only about a 1/4 fathom swing, but a full fathom between centers. How many knots does she run at?

                      One thing that does puzzle me about your description, I saw plenty of Reeds but where was the Apprentice?

                            Doc,
                            The rust is not a problem! All you need is an iron electrode, water and washing soda (Arm & Hammer is good) and a battery charger. About a tablespoon of soda to each gallon of water. Make sure the electrode is connected to the positive (red) terminal. Connect the lathe to the negative(black). You'll know it's working when the ocean starts to bubble.

                              It just needs a little "lite oil and steel wool"
