150 Optimax is spot on on the 620 i have put it to the test in various seas, some forum members can back me up.
Because the v shallows out on the 620 you need the wheight at the back to keep the back end in the water. The nose is a sharp v and cuts throught the water spot on. It was a bit of a risk setting the boat up like this, but it is great in all seas for a boat of this size.
The 115 would be like driving a 3 series BMW with 1.6 compared to a 2.8, the Suzuki 140hp would be like a 2.0.
I have driven a 620 with a Yam 100 on, this did nothing for me, also a Honda 130hp this was OK, pretty much did everything you asked it, but the 150hp Optimax does has its told, put 12 people on it and the torque of the 150 really comes in to its own and pushes it straight out of the hole.
Only thing with optimax's is the PTT motor leaking water in, if you get one gget your dealer to put extra silicone round the seal before it goes in the water
