I'm just watching waterworld ont telly.

This guy is building his own barge, with no rudder, instead it has a two 14kw electric motors at each end, which I would assume needs a bugger of a lot of batteries, however all we can see is a bank of 16, which he says will give him 36 hours of travel, I suppose there could be another bank at the other end making 32 in all, but it still doesn't seem to be enough battery power to me.

Depends what voltage batteries he is running

The higher the voltage the lower the current
