What is this Suzuki 100HP?

Can somebody tell me more about this motor? I can't find any info at all. I'm hoping some of you seasoned pro's have seen one before.. Click image for larger version

It's a mid 90's V4 2 stroke. Oil Injected model (self mixing oil). Not particularly a very popular model, the DT's,

Okay, that's starting to make sense. Another thing, it's on the back of a 5M Zodiac....surely that's too much??

Not really. The MOD 5.4 Seariders had 90hp on them.

Too much power is a controversial subject. Some will say what is on the plate in Hp, some will say kg, some will say if its still on the back its OK and some will say "what about the insurance". All valid points and you need to make your mind up I'm afraid.

To put in perspective I had a 5.5 Humber with a 150hp Optimax with a strengthened transom and a friend has a heavy duty 5.5m Northcraft that's rated for Cat b and up to 175hp.
