No one has wished death on anyone.

Yeah there's lots of jokes from adult incel males about the young girl. Gold star for you though for outright calling for her death. A fatwa against those that challenge your want to burn diesel ad infinitum.

Realistically, for safe navigation a series of electronic aids are required - radar, AIS, running lights, Communications.
All of these require electricity. Without a clean energy source on board you'll be required to run the engine to recharge the batteries.

EDIT : it has a source of clean energy onboard. Cheers for clarifying Mikep.

Taking into account the environmental costs of its production and maintenence (to take just one example marine antifouling paints can be a serious environmental hazard particularly in confined spaces like harbours and a boat that size should generate quite a bit) the overall environmental positives of this boat trip seem dubious.

Of course to raise such facts means I'm actually a paedophile with an unhealthy obsession with the girl according to some on here.

'is it too much to hope for a Titanic 2'. That's wishing someone dead. Incel gold star for vicious comment for you. At least you've avoided pointing that high powered wit at yourself for the day.
