I'd point out that the charging onboard electrical systems is also a bust... unless the system is a hybrid electric with some sort of fossil-fuel burning component... it will need a separate source to charge the system itself...
BTW, there's no way you'd get enough stored electricity to power the boat for 30 hours at cruising speed with a weight limit of 320 lbs. Just ain't gonna happen. Four T105 golf cart batteries are almost 300 lbs... and they only supply 450 amp-hours at 12 VDC.... or 225 @ 24 VDC, at a 20 hour discharge rate.

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.
