A seagull is simple and reliable. However you may find that a small modern motor is lighter for the same power. It depends on the use you have for a dinghy. It sounds like you dont need to travel far or fast. A smaller dinghy may well suffice as well. A 3.5 will push a 3.4m fine. I certainly wouldn't want to struggle lifting 15 hp.
