True, they're not ban, nor will they be but, they are being phased out.
I would op for the inboard rebuild, I have a 26 islander with a engine well in the aft deck for a outboard, the best I could do was a 5hp 4s OB, it's ok for motoring out of the marina, but not the best idea for motoring head on threw seas,currents & wind
also, consider the weight of a 100lb outboard canterlevered off your 35 yr old transom
