I have a pair of 2014 F-225's, 21P props, and she'll top out at 60. Plenty of speed and great economy too.

January is one of the roughest months of the year. If you can get out, you will enjoy good fishing just about anywhere. I suggest that you hire a local guide for best results.

May depend on where you are located. Here in S FL, I had two quotes for the 100 hour service: $750 and $1100 for a 2014 Yamaha F-225.
Both quotes included the water pump.
