Sounds like you're already aware of the need to fab a new end plate with bearing and make a shaft. That's a lot of work to go with what may be an undersized motor anyway. What's the load? Series-wound DC motors are affordable and easy to find, and will give very fine control. A permag sized for a planing hull would be 'coggy' at low speed, though if powering a displacement hull, a permag or shunt motor could be very precisely-matched with no controller needed.
