Default Brushless conversion of (Strimmer) Weed Whacker

I have a few worn out petrol powered strimmers and I've been wondering if its possible to convert to BL E-Motor .....

My boat channel needs clearing of weeds and reeds .... so I wondered if I could convert one of them to mount on side of a dinghy to cut the weeds. Power could be from genny with voltage reducer to give unlimited run.

Given a medium sized Strimmer - what sort of BL motor would be needed ?? It would have to spin up the metal blade - not the nylon line.
