Don't forget, electric drives/motors have been used to propel vessels for almost 100 years... Diesel/electric submarines. This is not 'new technology', it is old technology that is being put into a new medium. As far as using diesel generators to charge banks versus using a 'normal' engine to drive the boat and as a side, charge batteries, I think that it could be a really great idea.
