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.
