Not the best idea as you cannot insure it surely?

I would run it without a second thought. The 40hp 2 stroke yam would be lighter than the 40hp 4 stroke engine. Why don`t you message the seller to ask him to send you the engine weight, it should be on the engine plate.
If it comes back as just a little over the design limits I wouldn't fret, I dare say the 30hp limit is overkill well within the actual limit. Some folks like to stick to the rules the rest of us like to have fun.
Good luck.

RIBase
Max Hp/Max engine dry weight: 30Hp / 70kg is the spec on the craft. There is no law in going over this, but it can invalidate insurance and will be interesting to defend if in a court or law.

I had a 25 on the back of a 3.83 inflatable - and that was fun
