Anything is possible but I'm not sure you will be happy with this conversion. Are you willing to go from 20+ knots to around maybe five or six?
Also you will need a bigger wheel and then maybe a new shaft and then all the expense of a new engine bed and etc.
These engines were meant for sailboats to get them in and out of the harbor and maybe power them on a windless afternoon. Personally I wouldn't do it.

We have a 24' Nidelv Classic with a MD2B.
It weights more than 4000 pounds and has a maximum speed of 7 knots. Cruising speed is 5 knots and that's a comfortable speed for travelling on the Dutch waterways. A nice way to relax in a hectic life.
