When looking upon an aroused sea, many wonder how this seemingly large energy resource could be used. Inventive minds have gone to work on devices of all kinds - pumps and bellows, buoys, barges, and ramps, surface and subsurface siting, using alloys and plastics, etc. -generally based on mechanical or hydraulic principles. They would probably all work (if somebody would build them), but none thus far have been shown to do so profitably.
