Default Key West size?, speed?, im new to boats...

ok, so im new to boats, and i just got a key west from an ebay auction. it is in good condition. it is ebay item number 5951534971 my friend is getting the 32. i have looked everywhere, but i havent been able to find what length this boat is. any help? any help on general setup and tips? any help would be appricated. i have been into nitro trucks, and electric cars for a while, so im not new to rc. im going to buy a couple epic 3000 sport packs for it. i have a good charger, and a nice radio to run it with. i was thinking of useing my mc230r with that motor, would that work? the mc230r can handle up to 90 amps, so i think it should work. i am used to a car with all of its load, so i dont know how many amps boats would pull. should i get a 540 size 20 turn car motor? thanks!
