Default Larger Nitro Engine With Clutch?

I am building a 44" Dumas Cris Craft Tripple Cockpit Barrelback boat. And am going to be putting a Nitro Engine in it. I would like the engine to have a clutch. So that I can slow down to a idle and be safer around kids and pets ect.. The boat is not large enough to fit a weed eater engine. So I am stuck using a nitro engine. (I want to conceal the engine completely in the boat for a more scale appearance. ) I plan on implementing some kind of water pump for cooling.

The only option with a clutch that I have seen is a Kyosho GS-15MR Marine with Kyosho Clutch Set For Boats:

My problem is that the largest engine that operates with this clutch is a the .15 engine listed above. And I would like to use a larger engine such as a .32 or .46.

Does anyone have any advise as to where I could purchase a marine engine with a clutch that is a little more powerful?

Thanks
Jeff

Why not just use the size engine of your choice that has a clutch and then add one of those old KOOL KLAMPS made by OCTURA ? ( for water cooling the head/jug )

Wow you just missed a auction for what you are looking for. I almost bought it my self!

The engine is new and the clutch is water cooled. It ended for $76.01!
