Not sure but I think the 75 2t is about the same weight as the 60 4t and on a humber assault I think the lighter engine will suit the hull better.
We had a 70 2 stroke Tohatsu on a 5m assault and it was just right, I always wanted either a 75 or 90 2t mercury just for that bit extra.
The early 4 stroke mercury's are huge engines and look really heavy, I am sure if they have both been looked after they will both be good, for turn of speed nd pure fun I would go with the 2 stroke, best of luck, great boat
