Re: Smallest Diesel Generator Carrying Sailboat
There are many threads here on SN discussing that - I'd suggest you do a search on various terms relating to solar and or hybrid powered boats.
In my opinion, no - the technology just is not ready yet, at least not without a LOT of money, and a LOT of compromise.
I can deal with kerosene lamps when the batts are dead, that's a compromise I can make. I won't compromise safety - and that means the ability to get out from under a storm. Range and speed just aren't words one uses on a hybrid boat.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
