Main engine plus generator is the way to go definitely. The main engine is for pushing the boat along. Generator is for what it says on the tin.
A bit of solar isn't a bad idea although I'm not personally a fan of a lot of solar on the top of a canal boat.
I also think a bit of wind power is worthwhile if you are in an exposed location.
I can not visualise Mr Stabby mooring but if its windy I think there would be an option to stick a turbine on a land-mounted scaff pole thereby reducing the noise nuisance. Its mainly vibration down the pole.
If you could find a decent unit (a lot of rubbish out of china unfortunately) might be worth a go.
kris mentioned a VAWT vertical unit a while back which looks quite interesting. From kraut land. Obviously would be nice if there were some UK made options. I have Aerogen 6 and a 2nd hand Leading Edge in a locker waiting to be installed when I get out of the urban canyons.
Both UK made Horizontal turbines. Aerogens are no longer manufactured which is a shame because they are excellent equipment. Very high quality.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
