EV packs will get reverse-engineered by open-hardware guys, maybe usable as House banks on RVs, but boats IMO require a higher level of safety.

Now if your boat's big enough to carry a Prius as a complete unit, very useful self-contained genny+bank, plus heating/aircon in a pinch.

I want a boat that can carry a Prius as its backup battery bank!
