Engine Choice

I have finally reached the most expensive part of building my boat - Engine choice.
I am torn between three engines.
All are 25 horse power.
A Merc Bigfoot 4 stroke, Tohatsu 4stroke and a johnson 2 stroke.
Tohatsu is the lightest of the 2 4strokes Mercury has a better gear ratio and service availability, The Johnson 2 stroke is rock solid but has no assisted tilt mechanism.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Boat will have to be launched in the spring.
