Atomic 4 replacement with a diesel, estimated cost?

I'm interested in a Douglas 31 (like an Allied Luders 33 at some level but made in Canada) and would want to replace the 1978 rebuilt Atomic 4 with a diesel hopefully of similar horse power. Does anyone have suggestions for what kind of engine would work best, where to get a good quote in New England for the replacement and how much this might cost including the engine? Any other suggestions on how to make this more affordable (like things I can do myself) would be appreciated, anticipating a big price tag might make the boat unaffordable.
