If the prop, shaft and strut are straight and the v drive doesn't have water in it then all you really need is a 350 Chevy engine. Gotta be some 350 s down there?
Of course you're aware of other "small" issues like steering cable and possible elect gremlins but that boat is old enough that it will be serviceable with nothing more than a running drivetrain and some basic wiring.
Given your market there if you can pick it up cheap and can re power it locally you got a diamond in the rough.
