For sure! One could certainly spend a couple of days bolting in, say, a VW engine bought cheap from a junkyard. Or some other creative option. But at a certain point...you just have to wonder, what else isn't being told about the boat? Little things like, "there's no engine, the right one would cost...". When I shake hands with someone like that, I count my remaining fingers afterwards to make sure I get 'em all back.
