Why not rebuild your current engine? Returning it to new will be lots of boat bucks and lots of work less. If you do it yourself, possibly with a babysitter if you are inexperienced, you will gain a huge measure of satisfaction and knowledge (and a few new tools ;)).

Changing engines can be a brutally frustrating experience, even if access is not a problem.

Failing that, I'd enquire about engines that fit the same footprint.

Read Porfin's (unfinished) thread on rebuilding his Perkins. It will give you a very thorough picture of what will need to be done. If you take your time and don't cut any corners you will end up with an engine that is better than new and for a fraction of the price of a repower.

It's in the Diesel thread in Maintenance.
