Problems with unknown water leakage. Motor/ESC HOT. Have melted solder on 4mm motor bullet connectors. Full thread posting on RC Universe.
For the unknown water leakage;
1) remove brackets and everything from the transom, and re-mount with some silicon in between.
2)Check the water cooling hull feed-through collar(s), some are not properly glued from factory.
3) put a piece of heat-shrink over the stuffing tube where it enters the strut. Like this guy did:
This is a well-known issue where the water gets pushed up in the tube.

This should help

For the overheating;
1)Pull the shaft and check if it runs free, re-lube.
2)Set the Genesis with the rear end flat on a table, set strut bottom even with bottom or a hair higher, I'll bet yours is too low.
This will increase your speed and run cooler.
