Way cool but.

I'm surprised and suspicious to see a claimed PV efficiency of 18.8% as the panels are laying flat, which makes for a legitimate rating only at noon on the equator.

The boat weighs 89 TONS, holds 64 people BUT only has an engine of about 90 HP with an average speed of 5 knots.... Right.

Tides and rivers can run waaay more than that. For example:

"The Gulf Stream has an average speed of four miles per hour", according to NOAA.

Somebody needs to stick some sails on this thing.
