Nauticat 33 conversion to hybrid propulsion

Hello True Blue,
I have just purchased a 1978 Nauticat 33 (hull # 534) after loosing my vessel in S/T storm Andrea last May. This vessel is in rather good shape having had and two prior owners who nurtured her until a little over three years ago when failing health lead to total neglect. My plan is to rehabilitate the vessel and transform her into a hybrid propulsion (please refer to my website greenboatbateauvert. I met an English owner a few months back who told me you were perhaps the most knowledgeable person on the Nauticat 33, as the vessel has no documentation I am writing to see if you know of any sources of documentation I could access. Regarding our project, we were initially hoping that most of this retrofit can be handled through a single systems integrator but given the apparent displacement that may be optimistic, and I do not want to go down the diesel electric route as it would compromise a future swap out of the diesel generation in favor of a fuel cell approach such as Voller' current development (see fuel Cell on Board" at greenboatbateauvert.com/tech-blocks/energy/fuel-cells/voller
Looking forward to your comments
