Default Blazer Bay Boats

If owned a 2170 blazer bay and been on several others... Thinking about getting a new boat and have been looking at the Blazers again.. What are all your rants about their new boats.. I've heard lots of folks say to stay away but never off an explanation. I know the older boats had some fuel issues due to the overflow being on the side of the boat and water backing up into the fuel system. This isue has long been resolved so does anyone else have any issues with them??

I love the fact that they are local, the ride is smooth, dry, and the boat is very fast!

Let me know your opinions, PM the negative comments please.

Thanks in any advance for your help.

The wiring used to be horrendous...not sure if that's still trues but something to check out. Saying that they are great riding boats.

jlw, thats what I used to own a 2170 with a 150 2 stroke yahama and it would do 52mph.. I loved it, but sold it to buy a 21'cape horn. Which i later regreted Ive owned a 20' sea chaser flats boat too and the wiring in that thing was aweful, never seen such a rats nest under the colsole of the sea chaser.

I think alot of the issues they had were in the first few years, seems like most of the kinks have been worked out..

Boat looks sharp. Any advantages to the rolled gunnel vs. liner hull?

I loved mine, but the wiring could have been better.

Ive had 2 over the last couple of years - 22 pro and currently the 24 GTS model - no they are not a "top tier" boat but for the money they are great boats and I have been nothing but happy. I absolutely love this new GTS model! Keith and the guys at Blazer are extremely accessible and go up and beyond to make sure things are right .....

Have you considered looking at a Cape Bay 23? I help rig them but have never rode in one though.

Can get some pics if you would like?
