At its inception, this blog was primarily intended as a place to share technical information about the build of Old Nick. When we set out on the path towards having a serial electric hybrid boat built, there was very little technical information that we could easily find. We wanted to help others find information about choosing the type of hybrid best suited to them, the choice of batteries and solar panels and how to manage their systems.

Once the boat had been built the thrust of the blog changed to reflect our real life experiences of living aboard and cruising the waterways and rivers.

We have added a filter so that those in search of technical info can quickly access the technical info.

We are very happy to be contacted with any queries you may have and also happy to share our real life experiences aboard.
