A nice try, but a bit complex and if you look carefully, there are a lot of joints, which means that the propeller will (eventually) flop around a bit.
The limitation is still the size of the prop, which means that the engine cannot be all that powerful. However, it's still better than rowing the boat.
Compare it to the existing device, which you can see here. The skeg and lifting mechanism is all one piece.
