Change it and you will need to spend loadsa money.  New motor to start. Then adjust mounting beds, new controls, new gearbox, new prop, wiring etc. etc.

The Sabb 10 hp single is not that uncommon.  Found in a lot of Barney boats and at least 1 in the UCC hire fleet. An acknowledged expert is Jonathan at Union Canal Carriers in Braunston.

Some smaller Springers have them too. I think a few of UCC's hire boats have them also, doubtless due to Jonathan's enthusiasm. They must be just about the last "proper" engines in use in a hire-boating fleet.

They are loved by folks who have them - but - as a way of raising cash, or realising a substantial amount to fund something more in tune with today's needs - methinks, no...

If it runs reasonably well why change it? A new engine and all the alterations to the boat needed to fit a replacement will cost thousands more than you will get for the old one. And if it doesn't run well, getting it sorted will still probably cost less than replacement.
