I have been using the turnigy 120amp esc and a hobbywing 120amp esc which are the same thing for the last couple of years with no problems.

If you are going to prop up past the limits of the Aquacraft 60 a ESC, the motor won't be happy either if it's the stock 2030kv unit.

Yes sir 645 is going to get in your wallet.
You may be able to swing a modified M445.
Aquacraft recommends their AQUB9760 (GrimRacer L40 x 57 3 blade) as a "hop up" Have you tried one to see if it will take you where you're going?
