So the best thing to do in order to be green is to go with a smaller boat and eliminate any dependance on fossil fuel
engines for electrical
power. In fact solar
power also has it's own footprint in externalities - the carbon cost of making the panels
and disposing of them when you are done.
To be blunt you cant' say, "I'd like to be green, so I am gonna convert my boat to NG so I can have a big boat and all the luxuries I want."
To be honest it sounds hypocritical.
Don't get me wrong - I am not a greenie and I don't pretend to be.
But look on the bright side. When the fossil stuff does run out we'll all be ahead of the game
because we already have sails
. Just make sure your dinghy
has oarlocks or a sail.
