Convert NEUTON lawn mower to outboard motor

 Any thoughts on using a NEUTON lawn mower (36 Volt) to run an outboard motor?
1. Modding NEUTON to variable speed & reverse.  2. Remove engine from outboard.  3. adapt NEUTON motor to outboard shaft.  (The Neuton has the charging, easy battery removal/switching, circuitry).....
Thanks,  Jed
