Hello, I'm new to the forum and to the EV scene. I'm a long-time gearhead though.

I'm very interested in building a mild hybrid setup similar to the one in this youtube video.

I would like to do this mod either to my 2000 corvette, or to my 28' powerboat with a 6.2L mercruiser (chevy) V8. I imagine each presents their own challenges. The corvette is a very tiny car, and there isn't much room for added equipment. The boat requires a LOT of energy to move, so it would likely require a huge amount of battery storage to make it worth while. From my limited research, batteries look to be the most expensive part of the conversion.

I'd be happy to hear recommendations on books to read, videos to watch, and parts to purchase. Thanks in advance for the help!!!
