Is the suzuki 70hp four stroke (335lbs) to heavy for my boat?

I have driven a 15' Super Sport Limited (fiberglass console and seats), powered with a 70 Hp, 4-stroke Evinrude (made by Suzuki).
Compared with my own, 15' Sport power with a 70 Hp, 2-stroke Evinrude, my observations are as follows:
At rest the boat sits "bow high" and down by the stern. The motor well drain plugs are submerged, while at rest. Significant bow rise when coming on plane, but lots of power/speed. Exceptionally quiet.

Repowered my 15 with a 50hp suzuki 4 stroke. good power, boat sits well, very quiet and sips on gas. (I usually fish with 2 people on board, fishing gear and 6 gallon of fuel-fairly light load)
