If you're gonna do it...get 4 stroke with electric start and a cockpit mounted shifter. I'd guess a 9.9 would do, but a 15hp might be better. Most likely you'll need a longshaft (20"), but it depends on where you're able to mount the bracket. You'll also want to have a high thrust prop and a depending on the year and make, a reverse thruster, (for exhaust cavitation). For a professional install, with a decent motor, you're looking at a minimum of $3000-$4000. I'd seriously consider rebuilding your inboard first.
