I have a 04 Sea Pro 24' bay boat, bought used. It has a 225 Yamaha 4 stroke. It has somewhere around 800-900hrs on it. I've had 0 issues in the 3 years I've owned it. I run in mostly salt and flush after every use. I was told by mechanic and a few guides. I should see 2-3000 hrs with regular maintenance. I was told to stay away from the HPDI. I see more Yamaha and Suzuki outboards on the alabama coast than anything. It's not a fast boat but I get great fuel mileage. I also replace the impeller every year and let it warm up on the 1st start like I'm warming up a vehicle before I take off.
