Wave Catchers Barges© use high vertical drag coefficient large flat bottom barge hulls to ride the water's surface. The pressure on these very large flat surface areas lifts the barges almost the height of the swell waves, which typically pass every 5 to 10 seconds. The barge's mooring lines power generators located inside water tight barge enclosures. The top sections of the mooring lines are likely to be of a material that can resist the numerous cycles of varying wave loading and corrosion of mooring lines that must pass through the splash zone.
