Re: looking for advice

In the long run, if you don't want the value the boat to fall to the point you may have to give it away, bite the bullet and rebuild the diesel. It would be a great learning experience and it could even be fun.
There is no plus in adding a gas outboard to a 30 foot boat you actually intend to use in any but the fairest weather.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
