What is wrong with a 150hp on that!?
I`ve just sold a 5.5 with a 150 Optimax. Went like a rocket on flat water but had enough power for driving though waves! 52.4 knotts, a nice set up.
Needed toe straps and no-fear to use it!
That said I saw a tiny little hard boat under Tower Bridge the other week. It cannot have been more than 5m with a 225hp Mariner and four adults squeezed into it.
I saw the engine coming towards me first with this plastic bit attached to it!
