I run a 25 Merc 2 stoke on my 380....it only really comes into it's own when the boat is loaded up...

Loaded up it will still hit 20+ knts...at 3/4 throttle.the 15 will only get close to that 2 up at wot....(based on racing Matt h in his) :-)

You can never have to much power!...especially if it's lighter than the 4 stoke...much better response to if thinking of skiing....

Get a Tohatsu 2 strokes 18 HP if available in your area, you shouldn't go wot on choppy seas, worst with well inflated sib, will bump too much. Throttle down to maintain minimum plane, your passengers will have a much confortable ride including yourself.

Happy Boating
