I would say if you used a car alternator, you could probably get something rigged up.

I made one a few years ago using Bicycle light generator, 1/2" PVC, and an old box fan. Although it worked, it "put out" like a one armed bandit at the casino, and only with wind. But it worked.

Another option, apart from making one is to consider those used on sailboats - kind of spendy, maybe pick one up on hsolist or craigs, but they are nice, compact and put out like a cheap date.
