I agree with Brian60 that the motor rated at 17000 rpm  is not well suited for this projekt.
Instead I used the no name option rated at 3V 10000 rpm.


I've tried the motors in two configurations.
The first configuration with one esc controlling both motors.
A video with this configuration can be seen here.

It works ok, but the steering ability does not seem to good.
It's hard to turn the tug around in a simgle arch without touching the banks of the pond.


The second configuration utilizes the p82 w-tail mixer from action.

This setup has a dedicated esc for each motor.
It can be seen here.

Now it's possible to turn the tug on the spot.
Only concern is is that the mixer seems to accelrate the tug when a turn is attempted at low speed.
