    So I have had a crazy, but cool idea ever since I was a kid. I have an old innertube from a truck, but I have always thought it would be cool to hook a weed wacker engine to the back of it, so that it can be propelled around a VERY small lake. I would like to detach the motor from the shaft, but I really do not know how or where I would find a new shaft to put it in the water to propel it? Does anyone get what I am trying to do here?
