Can I remove the babystay and the engine?

I got a Yamaha 30, and I use a for club races. I found the babystay makes spinnaker gybing very unconvenient. If i remove it what will be the influence? Will the mast break more easily?

On the other hand, it's difficult for me to find a feathering propella here, so I want to remove the 16hp Yanma diesel engine and the propella, instead installing an outboard engine. But my friend told me if I remove the engine, the CE of the boat will change, and makes it can't go upwind, is it true?
