Ive seen horizontal shaft motors used more often - just hook the motor to a bracket that bolts to the back of the boat, then a simple shaft and propeller added on - verticle shaft motor youd need a ujoint to direct the driveshaft horizontal , and mount a couple inline berings to support it.

bench test the push mower engine without the blade before you put too much time in it.
most use the blade to make up the lack of weight on the flywheel and wont run right, not to mention they can be a wrist breaker trying to start them
