Hi the reason I suggested the 9.9 yamaha 2 stroke is its the max recommend for the boat & it is upgradeable quite easily which would mean the boat was still fitted with a 9.9 for insurance purposes .
I agree that 2hp will make only a small improvement & 15 seems a big jump & while it might be flighty with one person in, it will tame down considerably once loaded so as long as your carefull you'd probably be fine
Fwiw our boat was one of the first imported & 10 years on is still fine & hasn't had any special attention or been particularly loved so id say they are reasonably tough boats & would probably be fine with the 15hp if your carefull
