I just built my boat and it uses a 13hp Honda aircooled engine to drive a hydraulic pump to power
a hi-torque hydraulic motor which then drives the chain that drives the wheel.
See following for details, www.paddlewheelpontoon.com
May be cost prohibitive for a few years but eventually I would like convert to electric power and the Tesla
system intrigues me.
Appreciate any comments.
