Has anyone repowered a 13' classic with a 30 4 stroke?

I'm trying to decide what to do with my '72 13' Sport. I need a new trailer and the engine is a 1990 Erude 40HP. I can't decide
a) To sell it as is and buy a newer boat.
b) To repower with a 30hp 4 stroke and buy a new trailer.
The problem is the motor runs fine, and the trailer is OK, but I don't trust the trailer from Cinti to Fla. and I don't trust the motor out in the gulf. The boat itself is mint.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Jay

Jay have the trailer checked out. If OK trailer her down. then buy a new engine down here.....FL is cheaper. How much for the old one, I need an engine.

Nick, I have no idea how much it's worth. My thought was to trade it or sell it here. Get a new trailer and motor here and be ready to go. My place is in the Panhandle by Apalach. and I got till summer. Want to come up and get stuck in the sand with me and the boys? Jay

Don't trade, lucky to get anything for it. They wanted to give me free installation for my 90hp Yamaha.....sold it for $2500.
