Topic: Repower my 86 Contessa

The diesel on my boat has died. I need to repower. I don't think that I can afford a new inboard diesel, so, any opinions or options would be appreciated. Electric (inboard or out) or put an outboard on the back?

Re: Repower my 86 Contessa

What is the nature of the problem and have you looked into a repair? 
If un-repairable, used inboards can be had inexpensively sometimes if you keep your eyes open.  They are not very difficult to install. 
An outboard installed on a transom mount might be less desirable if you sail in bluewater.
