Afterall a 40 hp mariner weighs about 80 kgs. So two of them would be the equivalent weight of JSPs 115 Yam v4. On the back of a 4.7m Avon
Might be worth launching the boat and have two fat blokes sit on the back as a trial before going ahead and purchasing. Give them a paddle each to represent the top speed you would get with twin 40s too
Heavy steering, lots of easy start on a cold morning to get them going, expensive to run and a top speed of 20 knots hmm
or fit a nice 3 cylinder Yam or Tohatsu and have a really good sporty little rib. Now if we just knew of a Tohatsu 90 that could be fettled for a few quid this could be an easy project to complete. Someone might even throw in a white console for the project
