outboard to inboard

I have a 5m Chinook which is currently fitted with a Suzuki DT60. Is it possible to safely convert a RIB of this size to take an inboard diesel engine and sterndrive? If so can anyone recommend a suitable setup to give around 30-35 knots please?

Far cheaper, and easier, to sell your current boat, and buy something with a diesel sterndrive!
