Break it up into bits and sell it yourself. Best bet if you can.

Got one of my customers wanting to look at it first as he's re-built a few outboards and engines in his time, and always says anything can be fixed. Will need a new engine block, piston etc. it got us back in from 3 miles out so it still runs

I agree break it for spares and you may get a good return towards it's replacement.
