I have made a start on the fake outboard motor this evening.
I used some blue foam cut roughly to shape on my scoll saw. I then just went at it with some sand paper. It needs some high build primer and some more sanding. I will probably cut the bottom off it, and insert a brass rudder to reduce drag and improve strength.

trimmed down and sanded to round the shape off
Not too bad for a starter
Looks about the right sort of size! That was luck :)
