Should work, but with the large fuse crossection, a motor spinning a larger prop than 5-6 in. would likely be needed to get some decent thrust and speed out of it.

I'm going to go with a rudder mounted pod with tractor motor arrangement (like the Polaris seaplane), and maybe full articulating tailerons (no ailerons) if I can get the hinge and servo linkages strong enough.
