Been thinking about this also. It would take a pillow block or 2 but Jeremmy uses them on other tools so I know they are available. The second sprocket could be a m/c one that has been bushed and bored to fit the shaft. A huge advantage is that almost any small engine could be used. The engine would have to be offset but this should not be a big deal. Repairs should be simple, an important point on a lake 200 miles wide.Pat

one thing i come to think of, why not use the existing chain drive and just attach a sprocket to the shaft of the motor, that way it can be switched in minutes if it is discovered that it rotates wrong way, just rotate the motor 180 on the baseplate and propeller now goes right way.
flipping the motor is different from flipping the propeller, by the way.
