Electrify my boat?

All gutted out, waiting for diesel-electric system
I have a 43 foot sailboat weighs about 11 tons. Want to make it diesel-electric! I have purchased a 13kw (continuous duty) diesel generator, but the rest of it??? Looking for ideas!
Ideas, maybe not - but I do have a person for you.I was just talking to someone the other day in Florida who converts all sorts of vehicles to run on electricity; high-end sports cars, buses, trucks, boats, you name it. Quite a wide range of experience!
His name is Steve Clunn, and his website is Green Shed Conversions. You can find his contact information on his website.
Best of luck with your boat project, and keep us posted.
