For that kind of job you will need plenty of power delivered through a relatively large prop.  <div>The normal rule is to have a prop with a smaller diameter than the motor case,so its either a large motor, or a motor with a gearbox.  If you can find a window motor from a car, or a fan motor, these are ideal, and intended to run on 12 volts (SLA type ideal for displacement boat, NiMH packs if you need to distribute the weight).  </div><div>A 50-60mm 3 blade prop will do the job of putting the power into the water.  </div><div>Almost any low-end simple marine ESC for brushed motors with reverse (most of them) will do the job, as very few are rated for less than 10A, and the car motors are fused at less than that.</div><div>Do you intend using it in salt water or fresh water?  Calm lakes are not much of a problem, but small waves near the shore can be very big for a small boat.  Beach wavelets are very deceptive.  If its for use in a river, the boat needs to be able to go a lot faster than the water flow.  A friend launched his boat into what he considered a slow river, and caught up with the boat about 2 miles downstream.</div>
