Iam going to build a pair of these boats 1">1froot so 39" scale in Pine on Oak frames.

1950s Whitstable Fishing Boat Mmmtgs10

This is my first attempt at model boats  but have plenty of experiance in wood working and DIY
 However before i get posting on the forum i would like to say ive just had a bad experiance on an other forum and the lack of understanding of how i have to do things and why i may ask thing the way i do which is why i left that forum. Iam also going through a 4 1/2y brevement which has left me with no motivation /no life even before the covid and thats why these models will be my escape and a new begining.

Welcome Remus

Sorry to hear you have a bad experience on another Forum. I can assure you that we do not allow negative criticism, or attacks on members, on this Form. I as Moderator and Roadrunner,  the owner, are very definite about that. We will do our best to answer your queries and give any advice we can.
I look forward to seeing your build  as it progresses. Posting photos is very easy on this Forum. There is a built in image host, and there is no limit to photo sizes.

I think that a 385 class motor should be adequate. This would be a good motor to use with the ESC below. https://www.mtroniks.net/prod/Motors-For-RC-Boats/M400.htm
You could swap a speed controller between two models, but it would complicate the wiring, and probably introduce a point of weakness.
I would suggest a 15 amp ESC from Mtroniks like this https://www.mtroniks.net/prod/Boat-Speed-Controls/Viper-Marine-15-pnp.htm
It is certainly possible to swap a receiver between boats. These use plug connections anyway, so are easier to move.

I suggested a brushed motor as its easier to specify the size you need. With brushless you have to consider more factors, plus these were originally designed for aircraft use where high revs are required, and they only have to go in one direction. Things have improved a lot, and some now have good slow running capabilities. There are now some good waterproof escs offering forward and reverse - avoid the car ones as they have a brake function which can be a problem.

I have used a brushless motor in a small model, and I think the combination I used would suit your models, but I can't be sure. I used a 1000Kv motor and a 30 amp marine ESC. I can supply details if you wish, although I did buy from China.

I am no expert on brushless!
