Default 1/6 gas unlimited hydro questions.

My name us Mark and I'm starting my first r/c boat build from a laser cut kit. Its a1/6 scale model of an unlimited hydro ( piston powered) . I realize that this is probably not the correct first boat to build but I have over 30 years in the r/c hobby building and tuning ( 40% planes, 1/5 scale vehicles ect). Im trying to gather whatever knowledge you all have. I have a few questions to start. Whats the preferred mod motor for a fast boat? Is a clutch worth the extra weight? How about electric or pull start? More than likely, this boat will never race but I would like to make this a fast, good handling boat. I'm sure I'll be asking many more questions in the near future. Thanks.
