Zippkits Tugster Motor upgrades

I just finished a Zippkits Tugster and am using the 6v SLA batteries & motor sold buy Zippkits. With the 2 - 6v batteries in paralell, I need a motor that works best at
6 volts.
I am currently using an axial esc from a Deadbolt.
This tug / pusher will be used to rescue flipped race boats and doesn't need to be fast but, it needs to move with a little less lazzyness.
As I can't find any specs on the motor sold by Zippkits, I can't shop for a motor by the numbers.
Any recomendations?

Thanks

You might try a different propeller.

A 27-55 turn motor should get it a little pep.
I tried both in a springer, and the only real difference was a bit warmer motor at 27 turns.
