Rockter will become famous soon enough
If the boat can take the inboard diesel without weeks and weeks of modification, then it would be diesel for me.
It will outlast any outboard, 2 or 3 times over, and storing gasoline aboard for any reasonable range will be difficult.
The diesel will use less fuel, has no spark ignition to get damp, and is a better set-up for heavier weather.
For me, it would be diesel.
