Default Converting to brushless

Wondering if there are any suggestions for converting a 46" gator v hull from weed eater powered to brushless.I have a 160 amp water cooled esc and a 5c battery but looking for motor suggestions.
Thanks,
Gary

Save your time and buy another V
That hull is heavy and the center of gravity is hard to master.
If its gas now leave it that way.
I converted one last summer and it was no good.
That hull was designed around the gas engine and the weight.
If you are set on converting it then go over to offshoreelectrics
there is more info there.
