Umm... How many batteries do you have installed? You're gonna need a lot of batteries for that to do much of anything. The batteries will probably weigh a lot more than your old A-4 did, and won't run quite as well or long IMHO.

Basically, you'll be adding weight, and making the system less versatile, lower duration of run time and more vulnerable to problems... Umm... what exactly is the upside to doing this...and it's going to cost you a fair number of boat units to do this.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
