I'm sure the pirates will love this floating piggy bank, and insurance companies will come to hate it as fraud skyrockets.

    This could get interesting.
    A "smart" vessle, possibly transporting anhydrous ammonia along inter-coastal waters.
    A friend of mine was an accident investigator for the FBI years ago. He had a trip to LA to oversee a train derailment into a cooling pond of power plant. Switch gear was sabotaged. Fortunate two tankers did not rupture. If they had, with prevailing winds, casualty estimates between 500k and 750k.

    This is Greta's land. This is Greta's problem.

    It's tiny boat with minuscule capacity . It's maximum capacity is 120 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units.)
    A Panamax ship can transport about 4,300 TEU. About 36 times as much.
    A "New Panamax" can transport about 9,600 TEU. About 80 times as much.
    An Ultra Large Container Vessel (ULCV) can transport about 18,270 TEU.
    It would take 152 of those electric duckies to match the capacity of one ULCV.

    (I agree, pirates will love any un-manned vessel like this.)
