outboard for sailboat?

I recently cracked the block on my Islander 30 1973 sailboat, someone told me to put a harness on the back and mount a fixed outboard and steer with the helm. What size outboard would be good, long or short shaft, what are the benifits of a 2-cycle or 4-cycle engine, do I need a remote start or is a pull cord better, and can I run the onboard to the onboard gas fuel tank? I need all these answers answered. Also, who could do the job? Anyone have the answers?
