Small RIB to suit yamaha 30hp outboard wanted

Probably not the best way round to do things, but I have an outboard that I need a boat for.

Looking for a small rib, 3.5m to 4m. My engine is longshaft, remotes which kinda rules out a sib.

Anything considered.

A 4mtr Avon Searider would be a good match if maybe a little underpowered, longshaft transom and a deep V hull so will fit straight on.

I think that may be the route I go down. Although, I used to have one with a mariner 40hp, and cant help but think I'll miss that 10hp.

I've "only" got 30hp on my 4m Searider and it's fine. I had one with a 50hp before and I don't really miss the power.

An engineless searider must be cheap as chips to pick up.
