Engine wieght on Ribcraft 5.85

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

Not sure about the weight, but we have a demo boat at work (Ribcraft 5.85) Which has a Mariner 115 four stroke on it and that weights 175kg. The boat can take upto 150hp, we have had a 150 Optimax on the back and that weights 188kg.
Not sure what the Honda weights though.
