Hacking a trolling motor into a towed type generator

Has anyone seen this done?Its cheap, 12 volts, and draws about 40 amps. so if run wired to a diode then the house bank and powered up I speculate it could possibly pump out 10 amps. Total guess.

Might need a bigger prop, or one with a shallower angle, but I don’t see why this couldn’t work and if I’m right why more cheap sailors like myself haven’t done it. It’s even cheaper than solar if it works!
