    Thats actually a very good idea too...

    If it has it's own pickup turn it around on the bottom of the boat so the water is not forced in while running. That's the way I have my AC pickup mounted.

    If you like it rough do it OFFSHORE!!!

    one large RC car/boat/plane servo...and some creative jerry rigging. It is probably easy to rig a cable that will close the valve when you put the trans into gear, but opening it might still have to be done manually

    You have to shut down your generator - shut off a valve - to run your boat??

    Odd .... Unless we run the boat OUT of the water more than IN the water.
