I'd put a 15hp Mariner 2 stroke on it.

Another vote for the 15 (and more if the boat allows it). A 6 hp would almost as fun & exciting as filing a tax return.

Other excellent options will be 10/15 HP, both have the same CC and weight but 10 HP is carburated restricted. So the 15 HP will be more suitable. Choose the brand you like or best priced.
Ethanol is a fabric eater...

Happy Boating
Nothing wrong with the Quicksilver 3.1 sport - i have one with a 15hp Suzuki 4 stroke and it will do 25mph with 2 adults on board. It will still plane quite easily with 2 adults and 3 kids!!!
