Honda 110 is still made in Oz and NZ according to wiki, and its wet weight is just over 200lbs, which includes lots of 1960 era steel body work, and generally burly construction. I do remember seeing a fat man(300+) on a Trail 90 chugging up a steep hill in San Fran, so I figure it is doable once down-geared.
Cooling is another problem if using an existing air-cooled motor(for cost and simplicity) on a heavier, slower, more shrouded(figure the motor will be 'sunk' into the hull even if exposed to air) application.
So I figure if you don't have a berth along that wall you mentioned in a prior thread, or if they want a king's ransom, you anchor out, then you launch your Hybrid Motor-Recumbent-Kayak and motor over to the ramp at about 8 knots and ride up the ramp. Location: Arlington, WA-USA I thought of something similar but using a mountain bike for muscle power. Location: USA I like Petros' idea, except I would add the ability to adjust the beam on the cat hulls so you can adjust for stability vs. You could put a kayak on a go-kart, but you'll never use it on any street in the states or europe, you'd have a better chance with floats on an electric wheel chair.
As mentioned above adding a salt water environment in the equation is a real problem, I don't want my Transalp rusting away.
A 650 dirt bike will climb out of most anything, but not bolders along a rocky shore or quicksand mud or deep sand, just can't put off in such areas. Having skids instead of wheels will effect the approach and departure angle of your machine going over rough terrain or cresting over dips in a roadway, like approaching some RR crossings, depends on how long your outriggers are. Keeping within a realistic budget, the least expensive way to go is a trailer that can be pulled by your land vehicle that is also the frame for inflatable pontoons or boat that your land vehicle can be carried on.
If I had the cat pictured above and that Big Rukus, I'd bag it and be on my way, set it off on the dock and wheel it away. Location: maine If the dinghy had an electric motor and the bike had one too, a single battery and controller could be shared to save weight.

The hull could be designed so that you can lock the scooter in it in an upright stance for riding. With this, the scooter doesn't have to carry the hull and other boat apparatus around with it so it could be made lighter and more efficient.

If you stay under say, 49 cc as the drive engine to stay under the issues above, you absolutley will not have enough power to climb any significant grade pulling two people and the contraption with a banana from the store.
IMO, due to the restrictions of 1 and 2 above, the way of least resistance is to keep the floation device as a home made water craft that is easily described and conforms to reality along with a motorized vehicle that will pass as a road worthy vehicle. I thought using a water proof bag system that would cover the bike might work, but I don't know about condensation issues but it would keep salt out. Without an engine, the PWC hull would not be very attractive to steal, especially if it only worked with a particular model of scooter. The front wheel is clamped to the PWC steering mechanism so when you turn the handlebars, it steers the craft. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.

When you get ashore, if you don't want to lock your rig to a tree, pack it up and pull the trailer with you.
The rear wheel is clamped to a drum so that when the engine turns the rear wheel, it turns the drum and the turning drum powers a propeller or pump to drive the craft. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. A motorcycle would work well for this arrangement and it could all be registered and insured for each element, for what they are.
