Your best bet is to build an airboat. Airplane motors aren't made to hang a boat prop on. They run on lower Nitro and oil content than do boat motors and the motor timing is different. Get a Dumas airboat kit or get plans from www.radiocontrolzone.com .

you take hard firm foam. cut it out and sand it smooth. take 1/4" aluminum and bend one side 1" qnd the other 1" also. mount your motor. make a rudder. and fiberglass the bottom. this is a fast explaniation if you want a more in depth one go here:
