I fly electric powered planes and recharge them at the field with a 12 amp sealed lead acid battery. For a given model, I can fly almost continuously with three lipo packs, one flying, one cooling, and one on charge. If you can use large enough capacity lipos, or A123 packs, you should be able to run smallish scale runabouts at scale 40mph speeds in much the same manner with good duration. IC powered boats are often banned where electrics are permitted or ignored. Your boat will last years longer, with almost no maintenance, using clean smooth electric power. BTW, 2.4 ghz radios work well in boats, not bothered by motor brush noise, etc.
