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.
