In terms of the motor, you can buy an automotive motor used and swap over all of the marine parts. Internally, the head gaskets and the frost plugs are all that need to be switched to marine from automotive, then externally it'll be the carb, distributor, exhaust and alternator which presumably you already have from your original motor set up.

Someone jump in if i've missed any parts that need to be switched to marine, its been a couple years since I rebuilt mine from an automotive block

The old engine is not worth rebuilding?
