USV Survey Boat Help and Question

Dear All,
First I will introduce myself I am a computer programmer and a electronics hobbyist , we own some fish ponds , fish die during overstocking I decided to build an Unmanned Surface Vehicle, I have already programmed the computers and worked over everything The only think I am really struggling with is the design of boat , i tried creating a square box with a plastic fan and brushless motor of a quadcopter but the issue is my boat doesnt do straight it just start going towards the bank of the pond. I have zero idea about the rudder control (i know i can control it with a servo motor) , secondly my boat is small not larger than 4 feet * 2 feet. My boat has an oxygen sensor which will keep on sending me data for the oxygen currently in water.
I am writting this post for helping with the
1. which motor and propeller would be better for such a small boat? it is not a racing boat it needs to go slowly and only run when it is needed.
2. any other design options which can help me in creating such boat?
