It will not be cheap
It will not be simple
I want to be able to go hull speed whenever and for as long as I want as long as long as I'm willing to run the diesel.
I want to go quietly for as long as the batteries hold up when the diesel is not on.

I'm pretty sure it is doable the real question is if I'm willing to pay for it in both time, money and complexity.
