I think most Marine engineers would agree with that and it feels great when you throw them into a skip
Well I wouldn't go that far. I never had any issues with the one I owned except for lying it down wrongly (user error) and then it smoked like a 2 stroke! And I got back pretty much what I spent on it. Air cooled is probably good for the type of canal work the OP is suggesting but it was noisy which is one of the reasons I sold it. The tone of the noise is particularly harsh, perhaps not everyone dislikes it but I know I am not alone.
Not sure how the plastic prop would take hitting shopping trolleys etc.
