In other words, a rotation of shaft 4-125c in a first direction is associated with one of the depending connectors winding up on its respective pulley/capstan and the other unwinding on its respective pulley/capstan. The two flexible connectors 332 and 333, which are actually two different portions of the same flexible connector, pass through the rectangular central aperture 340 and connect the power take-off of the embodiment to one or more objects below the surface of the water, and below the embodiment.

A top portion of flotation module 1-105 bears and/or supports a power-take-off assembly including a bearing-and-generator housing 1120, a bearing housing 1-121, a shaft 1-122, and a pulley/capstan 1-125. Bearing-andgenerator housing 1-120 and bearing housing 1-121 straddle central aperture 1-115, and each contains a bearing assembly allowing shaft 1-122 to be rotatably supported above central aperture 1-115. Pulley/capstan 1-125 is operatively connected to shaft 1-122 so that the rotation of pulley/capstan 1-125 about a horizontal, longitudinal axis thereof is associated with shaft 1-122 rotating about the same axis. The axle or shaft of each roller penetrates the wall of the PTO module 6B and 6C is connected to a respective crankshaft.
A generator 524 is rotated, and generates electrical power when the distance between the buoy and the inertial mass increases thereby inducing a tension within the ribbon cable in response to the generator’s resistance of the roller 522 to which it is rotatably connected. 206 in an expanded and/or deployed configuration, such as might characterize its resistance of an upward acceleration.
Alternately, an embodiment may utilize a restoring weight attached to the other end 109 of the ribbon cable, and allow the gravitational potential energy of that restoring weight (which would have been lifted when the ribbon cable 103 was paid out during the buoy’s rise and the inertial mass’ resistance to that motion) to remove the slack in the ribbon cable 103, and to shorten the portion of it intermediate between the buoy and the inertial mass. 367. This would tend to create a significant opposing torque that would tend to preserve a horizontal alignment of the buoy and prevent its rotation so as to maintain the relative position of the inertial mass 361 along the buoy’s inertial mass alignment axis. 327, provide tension throughout the flotation module along diagonal axes. 135 and 136, and taken along a section plane “2” specified in FIG.
