Hydraulic engine as pump

I'd like to use a hydraulic engine as a backup propulsion system on my boat.
I need max 50kW at 200rpm.
Does anybody know if I can use a hydraulic radial piston engine as a
hydraulic pump while I am not using it (as an engine, that is) as a backup
for my hydraulics system??
I also worry if I could power such a hydraulic engine with my existing axial
piston pump (powered by a 3cyl diesel) or if that is simply a question of
getting the flow vs. pressure right.
Thx for your input,
