outboard on O'Day 192

Just out of curiosity what is the weight of your outboard on your 192? I am thinking of replacing my 4 hp 2-stroke motor which weighs about 30 lbs with a 4 stroke. I am a little hesitant about buying a 4 hp 4 stroke because they all weigh about 50-60 lbs. OTOH I am concerned that a 2 hp 4 stroke, though about 30 lbs, will have enough power for the 192. The dealers claim that the 4 stroke 2 hp is at the prop and is probably the same power at the prop as my 4 stroke.
