One of my slip neighbors has also gone electric on his sailboat. It's worked quite well for him as far as docking, etc. The only real limitation is limited motoring range (~25 nm in his case unless he adds more batteries). But as long as you plan around that and don't expect to motorsail or motor whenever the wind is a bit too light, it works. In his case, he had a dying diesel already, so he wanted to give it a try rather than rebuilding or replacing the diesel.
