What you need are plans to build your own low yield nuclear electrical generator. All you need is a source of fuel and a few parts from home depo/lowes etc and a few simple hand tools. Oh yeah, and a degree in nuclear physics and engineering. Think of what that could do for a small boat; a 1 megawatt system would take care of it :-)

Doug, don't waste your time trying to build your own. The USSR deployed some 2000 "strontium piles" as remote beacons and markers during the cold war, and apparently most of them have gone missing.

Just buy one of those on the black market, hook it up to a conventional steam engine in the back of the boat, and you're in business.

Oh, just remember, the Japs won't let you come visit in a nuke boat. They're still upset about WW2.

I doubt you could buy enough copper to pass 200 amps for the $200 he claims you can do the entire project for.
