Side view of the underwater VAWT.

OK, so the sails are a different angle to previous pictures.  They are both reaching, but in different directions.  The floatation/buoy thing is visible breaking the (crude representation of) water surface.  The counter weight at the bottom is not resting on the sea/estuary/river/lake/lough bed.  In this design there is only one cable/rope/cord preventing the thing from floating downstream.  Also shown is a simple squared rig, that sets the direction of the contraption, and is a fixing to the cable/rope/cord/etc.
