My 2 cents: Sell it and buy a cheap wooden troller. i think that the cost of retrofitting the sailboat would be high and it would end up being very awkward to fish. Also when you get out of trolling you're going to be hard pressed to sell it or get your money back out of it (not that anyone ever gets their money back out of ANY boat )
