This is a Wave Turbine. This concept produces electricity. First we have to build a Float. That is 500 ft L x 40 ft W x 10 ft H, weight 3000 lbs. We have a curb 6 ft high at the edge to collect the waves. One side of the float is nailed to a frame that is attached to the bottom of the sea. The ocean always produces waves. The waves will hit the float which will make the float go up and down. Then in the middle of the float there will be another frame. That will carry the Generator. The Generator will be installed to the spindles weight 500 lbs each spindles. In the middle of the spindles we have a gear box connected to a lever arm that is 5 ft long. When the waves hit the float it goes up turning spindle 2. When the float goes down turning spindle 1 the spindles take turns spinning so it can pull the Generator. This produces electricity. We have an adjustable frame nailed to the sea floor to control the float. The maximum of the float waving up is 6 ft high. When there is a big wave we can lock the float for safety.
