Default Got an alligator airboat need some help

Not much of r/c guy and my daughter and I purchased this alligator airboat your boat.
Kind of lacking some power and we found GoolRC F540 4370KV Brushless Motor with 45A ESC Combo for 1/10
On amazon... any luck with this product?
Also need to fig out what size battery to use with it.
Prob will need to go with a four blade prop as well
Any thoughts would be helpful
Thanks in Adv
Rob

Any motor you prefer over others? Esc combo?
What about battery or brand?
