Pretty good idea for a work barge that has a large Diesel generator to power various tools and other hydraulic powered equipment. I bet the outboard is nice and quiet now. Probably not very fast though.
Chris is right and Fred, its been done. I can show you a dock barge running around Marco with a Hydraulic motor bolted on where the powerhead used to go. The real plus is that he welded the clutch dog onto the shaft becaue the now the shaft reverses.

Merry Christmas Fred, well go fishing some day..
