Kidding. Pretty cool use of induction.
I don't think it would be very effective at heating water since water isn't nearly as conductive as a copper pipe. Might work better with saline due to the ion concentration.
Of course, if you're just trying to heat water then it's best to skip this whole set up and use the electricity/fuel powering the motor to heat the water. Or use the sun which is as close to free as you can get.
