My Futura 2c goes like stink with two people on board. I've got a 20hp 4-stroke. I think a 30hp is more than you need for 2. If you are hauling a boat full of divers, or you like going fast, go with the 30hp.
I think you could
do 1.5m waves just fine. Question is, would you want
to do 1.5m waves in a little SIB?
EDIT: The Honda 20hp (in it's lightest incarnation) is 104 pounds, right at the limit of what I can carry on my own. If you are thinking of getting a bigger motor, that means a trailer, so why not get a RIB?
