that's a lot of horsepower on a 14 foot boat.

CalebD will become famous soon enough
The boat with the 50 HP engine is a power boat. This is a sailboat: Mistral 16 sailboat for sale
like your Mistral 16'.
Free advice.
- Learn to maintain and service your 3 HP outboard yourself.
- Learn how your boat sails first with only the main then the jib and only then work your way up to using the spinnaker gradually.
Observation.
It looks like a pretty fun boat and you have a motor. Go have fun!

Unless you have personal attachments or historical restoration ideas for the Chrysler outboard, just remember that every penny you spend on fixing it will be one less penny you have to buy a reliable replacement for it someday when you've had enough of being towed back to dock!

(I know that was harsh, and if its for sentimental reasons, that's a differn't story...but mine and many other experiences with Chrysler O/Bs is make sure you have a rope and comfortable paddles with you)
