so , for sure, a long shat fit a ribcraft 5.40 .
is there any member who has a 90 HP, 2 stroke on this boat (execpt E-TEC, i can't afford this great engine), if so, what is the consumption with this boat?

An XL motor fits a transom of 25" (635mm) minimum.

a 90 yam would be pretty gutless on a 545, its a very deep hull and heavily laid up boat so 115 minimum really. Maximus's 545 was mental with the 130 but with a yam 90 expect 30 knots and slow to take off

I've read that with a 75HP, 2 stroke, a 5.40 at full throttle reaches a 32 kn, considering this a 130HP, should take it to the moon.
i guess 75 or 90 HP is enough for some kind of use.
