Now I know what they are called!

Long tail boat motors. air cooled. some are water cooled too. and very large. great for mud too. Not something for a sailboat... Dangerous for sure

The motors you see on rivers in the congo and amazon river type boats. Thailand too. BOG HOG MUD MOTOR | Long Tail Mud Motor Completely Assembled

Long-tail boat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very simple and makes engine maintenance really easy due to good access all around...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Kinda really solves the problem of mud and silt clogging the RW intake and or impeller on outboards and even I/Os

Charge

Not all that unusual, being charged for tail. At least in one way or another.
