Sounds like you've made your mind up re hull and consequently engine, though you don't see it.
Though I'd agree re 2 v 4 strokes, the suz 4 is amazingly quiet, especially compared to optis!!!!! And more than sufficient for rough stuff, which you like. If you're taking family out and then playing on your own in rough stuff, the 4s will be lovely and quiet and enough for rough. The engine suits the boat. If your racing and just want speed, then the revenger and opti probably suit you more!
