You should be able to get a long shaft outboard. It's a lot easier to take care of an outboard than an inboard. You need to check for hull blistering, expensive job. Also look for water intrusion into the deck core, also a difficult job. Is this the original rigging? It would be time fro replacement if it is. If it has the original gate valves for the thru hulls that's something you'd want to replace. Not too big a job. Check the hull to deck joint for collision damage/leakage. Also check for a sloppy rudder you may need to replace the bearings. Not too big a job. It's a well built boat . Should serve you well
