you will need a 6 -15hp short shaft (so get a 15hp if you can)

have a look at this to see if it is the correct one I think you are talking about a AFL360 with an air floor?

You need to be a little careful as your Sib is rated to a 15. Check the maximum engine weight on your Sib plate and check on the manufacturers website the weight of the mariner. Some people including me do go a little over the recommendation. But that recommendation is capacity loading based on weight and stress from the engine on the transom. If it is significantly over you may risk causing damage to the transom or worse watching the engine sink to the sea bed. Only you can decide what is significant!

i may oversize my engine but wouldn`t inform the insurance if i did one thing to remember is the transom will be rated to a 4 stroke (on a modern sib) so if you go for a 2 stroke i`m guessing you you could be ok .. you don`t have to turn that dial
