Boat to engine wieght ratio Ribcrafts

Hey i dont kno if the title made alota sense butttt im almost 99% sure i am bbuying a Ribcraft 5.85 (19 ft) for next year but the only engines that RIBCRAFT USA offers are Hondas which are very heavy i hear. What kind of problems would i encounter if i put a 115 4 stroke Honda (500lbs) on a 19 ft Rib? Thanks

O and...anyone else have this RIB with a Honda 115 on the back? Thanks again

Well I use a 585, with twin 60 Marinar Bigfoots 2-strokes on the back, and it goes like stink, fully loaded. Handles and rides waves very well.
