Default Pro Boat Apache 24 Upgrades

Since there's no boat specific forum I thought this might be the next closest place. I've been into helicopters for about 6 months and am just recently branching out with the UM T-28 Trojan plane, Revo 3.3 truck, and now the Pro Boat Apache 24 Catamaran.

An RC boat always kind of seemed silly in my mind, generally if I'm by/on the water I'm going to be on my jet ski; but it also seemed silly to live on a lake and be into RC without having at least one boat.

So I walked down and launched it for the first time today and was pretty disappointed with its speed. I don't know what I was expecting, but obviously my expectations were too high.

What brushless motor, ESC, and prop combination would be a good upgrade for this boat? Obviously I might as well upgrade to LiPo power while I'm at it, but whichever new ESC I get will already be set up for that, right?
