Default need parts

Hi, I'm looking for some submersible motors and propellers for some boats I'm making for the pool. They don't have to be very powerful, cheap is more important. I don't want them to go very fast either. Battery life is important though. I would want to turn it on and have it run for at least 6 hours. This is just for a party, Iwould like to have a bunch of boats moving around the pool. Ihave the boats, Iwill just put the battery inside and attatch the motor underneath. Ifigured this might be a good place to try to find out where to get the parts Ineed. Thanks!

Horizon Hobby has a few of the small Tamiya submarine motors that run on a single AA battery.

For longer running times it might be possible to put a larger battery inside the boat, and run wires down to the pod.
Maybe a C or D cell battery might be plenty.
