Some good points from Phil. Personally I wouldn't put a new engine on that boat and certainly not a heavy 4 stroke for all the reasons Phil outlined. Instead why not keep the costs down and go for something like this.

Same engine as the 55hp Mariner. Old tech but dozens about, cheap as chips to get you out there doing it.

Cheap, yes but Standard shaft. Seariders run Longshafts.

Pete,

Think he was referring to the yamaha 50hp I posted, I missed that it was a short shaft, definatly no good for a Searider.

Oops sorry, missed that. Couple of thoughts, the boat was cheap, keep the engine cheap and simple too so if in a couple of years Mike decides to change then its an easy sellable package. Servicing costs cheap and a DIY job taking an hour tops. Notice how the sub 5m rib owners are always out on the water doing it, lots to be said for small ribs, shown by Daniels (DJL) epic voyage back from Weymouth in 2003. Hmm that gives me an idea
