When handling the boat, drive mode is selected by driver depending on battery SOC (like ”fuel level”) and how far to go. ”Battery mode” or ”Hybrid mode” can be selected. In hybrid mode the RE operation is done automaticly. The RE will shut down at slow speed, e.g. at harbor, narrow passages, speed limits etc. If battery charge allows this.
