That's a pretty big boat for that motor, and IIRC the kv is pretty high on it. I would aim for a lower kv motor (~2200kv) on 3s to keep the RPM down a bit.

Still too high of kv for 3s IMO, unloaded RPM is over 40k rpm. It can work, but you'll need to run a small prop to keep the load down.

As for the ESC, you'll need a separate BEC or a receiver pack to run that one. If it were me, I would get one that includes a BEC for simplicity.
