    Has anyone tried or thought of putting an airplane engine in a boat. the prop shaft that i have is extremely lightweight and i was wondering if the engine would spin fast enough and still be able to not burn it up.

    Yes, it's been tried probably thousands of times. The motors are 2 different animals. The boat motors have a more advanced timing and are water cooled. The plane motors don't wind up high enough to run well in a boat.
