For example, with an ocean going ship, the hull is tapered, especially at the bow and stern sections. The rise and fall of the tides can be emulated by a lock in a river or other downhill flowing water body. One way to smooth out the fluctuations in the tides and produce electricity constantly, or nearly so, is to regulate the water flowing through the ports 23 (see FIG. In some installations, the harborage serves to regulate the water level and thus the vertical movement of the vessel hull. The vanes can be partially open to regulate the flow of water therethrough. Alternatively, the harborage can be left open with one wall missing, until the hull is located therein.

Referring to FIG. 5, there is shown a double acting piston and cylinder 31. In the preferred embodiment, the cylinder 33 is coupled to the vessel hull 11, while the piston 35, mounted on a rod 37, is coupled to a fixed object 38, such as the harborage 13. Thus, the cylinder 33 moves with the hull 11, while the piston 35 is fixed.

18 installed in a river environment, in accordance with one embodiment. The venturi is particularly useful in increasing head in a river or stream bed that is relatively flat or has a low head. The venturi, or expander, causes a pressure drop after the turbine 27. The venturi is useful for increasing the pressure differential or head across the turbine. This conserves water volume and head in the reservoirs 13H. Once the water level is equalized, valves C are closed and valves D are opened. The first reservoir provides more water volume to the harborages than does the second reservoir, so the water level in the first reservoir drops more than the water level in the second reservoir. Then, a first reservoir can be used to fill the harborages 13 to a next higher water level, followed by a second reservoir.
