a 130 Yamaha (guessing its a V4 2 stroke) should push that Eagle to 45 knots.
With your engine being mounted to port already it will need to be a Contra rotating one which wont be easy to find, although ebay would be a good place to look. I should imagine its the same leg as a 115 and possibly 150 however don't quote me on that.
All depends on how far you want to go. If it were me I would source a longshaft standard rotation, remove the engine and fill the holes (properly) and then refit the engine with some starboard offset.
If you are comfortable doing this yourself you should be able to find the parts to do all this and then hopefully manage to sell your XL or UL shaft parts to recover most of the cost..
A nice winter project perhaps !.
