Get an airfix model boat and a cheap RC car and its motor, I could sell you most of the arts if you live in the UK, otherwise just go to a shop. Drill a hole just bigger than the bit that turns on the motor and put some glue gun glue on the outside of it, put the motor in then turn it on until the glue dries, it will be virtually water tight as long as you don't leave it in the water for more that about a few hours. Then connect the wires (if you took them off) from the CPU in the RC car to the motor, and glue a string to the front to steer t home, or f you are good at that sort of ting make rudders and connect it to the CPU.
