Sounds a little under-powered in my opinion. The Zodiac Futura MkIII HD is rated for 50hp. Given you've got a 4-stroke on there won't help, as all the weight is at the stern as you're tiller-steering. Might be worth adding some weight up front to keep the bow down. A 40hp would be a good compromise.

With a 50hp on the back...
