Outboard choice?

I am currently refitting a crusader 16.
Plan was to fit a mariner 90 3 cylinder. A few people have said that's it's a tad to big. So I also have a Johnson vro 70.
Which would be better. ??
Also looking to sell on so don't want something with over powered. Also don't want something unreliable ??

Yam lighter, better power to weight ratio, more reliable, faster

Hope that helps mate
