Default barge power options.. need help

I am building a barge. 24" x 12" made of wood/foam. I need to power it. Was wondering what setup to use. I want to run 2 motors that steer by forward reverse (like a tank)... no rudder. What esc should I use. Which radio? What props for slow moving heavy barge?

Thanks for taking time to help.

cant give you an exact but i would reccommend a low reving motor with alot of torque. Therefore you can run a larger prop, which will aid in steering.
