It depends on where you'll be using the dinghy. If you're using it to regularly cart water, fuel, groceries etc out to a mooring in windy or rough conditions, you might decide you need more power. If you can get by with the smaller one you have, it will be much easier to take on & off the boat. I found the 9.9 hp motor I had to be very heavy and awkward, I switched to a 3 hp Merc....much easier.
