The motor is totally unsuited for your .20-sized boats. The Kv is far too high, and the amp rating of the ESC won’t last thirty seconds with that motor - but it might work with a reasonable motor.

An excellent motor for your applications is the ProBoat 3650/1800Kv offering. You could spend less for a HobbyKing motor with the same specs, but the ProBoat motor is well proven. Running on 4S packs with at least 5000 mAh of capacity it will spin props from x440 to m445. The ESC might work if the boat is set up pretty loose.
