Do floating wind generators also produce wave energy?

    No, so far not one wind farm produces energy from wave. In fact wave energy is just being explored and implemented on the coasts of Oregon, where if it proves efficient it will power 400 homes by 2012. Actually in the UK they are planning to build a wind and wave farms of a capacity of 29 gigawatts, which would be the largest by far, by the year 2020. But it is not mentioned if these will be using the same base for both wind and wave energy production. But fitting current wind farms with wave harvesters seems unlikely because wave harvesters are too big.
