This is a pit into which you will toss excess money you don't need nor want. The hull will perform poorly with much power and is brittle so it will shatter if hitting anything hard. Can't tell how big it is, but using hobby-grade motors and ESCs, re-engineering the drives and steering etc. will be a lot of cost and work. I strongly recommend that you run it as is and save up to purchase a better boat worth all the trouble.

If you decide to go ahead with this, I am afraid I have little in the way of suggestions for power. 28mm motors running on a single 4S pack, 50 amp controllers, a rudder hung off the transom with steering servo. Sorry.

For less Cost, I suggest using 480A Water cool Brushed ESC for existing 2 brushed Motor, Add Water Cool Ring to Existing Motor.
Keep using existing Drive system. Just add a servo and Middle Rudder. Running is 2S LiPo is fine enough.
