Agree with TidyBoy here. Difficult decision. Personally I think I'd go for the 14 but it all depends what you want to do with it.
What level are you at Ski wise?
Are you aiming to be the world champ, or just have a bit of fun at weekends?
I learnt to mono behind a 50HP (pre-ICOMIA). I think a modern 60HP is fine for beginner mono-skiing. (as long as you're not XXL)
My feeling is that it's better to have a slightly smaller, slower boat that just works, than a bigger one that keeps needing 'reassurance'.
You can use the money you save to buy petrol & beer, or stick it in an ISA and upgrade your boat in a few years time to match your new-found wake conquering strangle-hold.
