Retrofit 2000 tohatsu with electric start

Hey Everyone. I have a line on a 2000 Tohatsu 2 stroke 8 HP long shaft for my Catalina 27. Can I retrofit it with electric start and if so, what's an aproximate cost of doing so? I have an adjustable backstay which makes it very hard for my wife to use a manual start. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I guess you have never priced Japanese outboard parts Usually they run double of U.S. equivalent parts.
