Well after 16 years my 225 said no more this morning. Looking for help on buying a new one, any suggestions where or best price for a new one? Thanks in advance.

Jaco's has good prices. Or go buy the lake fork guide's 250 that is only 11k with low hours and warranty if I remember correctly. That's what I'd buy.

Texas Outboard Rebuilders maybe 4 or 6k on a rebuild top to bottom with warranty. Check them out before you buy.

Might try Rockwall Marine too, new top end could be cheaper and they are the best IMO.
