Yep.

Might be worth looking for a decent sib instead.

You may get an old S3.40 Avon SIB for 500, but a half decent RIB will be 1000+

Not many small RIBs are rated to 25hp - you'd be looking at 3.40m/11' min.

where i live all the boats are left on the beach, with licences. and a sib would not cope with going up and down the beach. im after one with a solid fibreglass hull. All the boats are unattended. However i work about 20 meters away from where it would be put.
And im sure if someone was out to go steal a boat/outboard they would aim for a more expensive boat and not be aiming for a 1987 Yamaha enduro outboard or an old avon rib!

Isn't your Yam 25 longshaft? If so, most SIBs wouldn't be suitable in any case. Nor, for that matter would an Avon S3.40 (RIB or SIB), as these take std shaft (15" mid) outboards.

The S3.40 and S3.45 are entirely different boats.
