Looking at power options for the boat, the best all-around performer in my opinion might be the 320-hp MX 6.2 MPI Bravo One. At 993 pounds, it has a power-to-weight ratio of 3.1 pounds per horsepower, while the 1,224-pound 496 MAG HO Bravo Three has a ratio of 2.88, and that doesn't include the weight of the Mercury Racing Integrated Transom System. Also, with the smaller block and a single prop, you wouldn't suffer the power loss that results from spinning two props. A friend of mine owns a pair of classic 22 Pachangas: a 1987 equipped with a 330-hp 454 MAG, and a 1986 installed with a 270-hp 350 MAG. His small-block boat runs 62.9 mph, whereas the big-block-powered model tops out at 60.9 mph. Finally, the MX 6.2 would get better fuel economy, too.
