Default suggestions for 90HP on older pontoon

A buddy of mine and I got a scored a really good deal on an older Pontoon. We knew going into it the deal that the motor was shot, but at the price we got the hull and trailer it was way worth it to us. We are going to rig it primarily for fishing, so we plan on ripping the old seats out etc. We are weighing out on what to re-power the Pontoon with.
The hull is a late 90's Sun Tracker with an aluminum deck, so it's built well and light weight. Especially considering we plan on taking out most of the furniture and replacing it with fishing seats to open up the space. What 90 HP Outboards s have the best power to weight ratio and are best suited for moving a Pontoon around on a large lake?

The 90hp suzuki is a great option at 340lbs. It spins a 14" diameter prop for better bight and and less slippage for pushing a pontoon. Its a compact 4 cylinder that is very economical and comes in either white or black color choice. It also has a 6 year protection.
