Re: 1977 ODAY Repowering options Questions

I have an outboard and it works great a 9.9 2 stroke Marnier. My concern is for longer trips. I live in southern California and we have the channel islands nearest ones abiut 20 to 30 miles off the coast on these trips id like the added security of an inboard. I dont mind paying a couple grand for a nice used diesel. I can also install it myself saving me some money.. ive been looking on ebay and craigslist and ive found a few decent engine for 1500 to 3000 dollars. I just dont want to be stranded out there because my outboard died.. i guess thats a question though is this boat worth repowering?
