I've heard alot of mixed reviews lately on Blazer Bay. Some praise and some out right disgust. I would like to hear some pro's and con's on the 2420 specifically.

I am not bias so please bring all comments good or bad, just please have something to back up your opinion. Thanks for all the help guy's!!!!

Blazer makes a great riding boat but I think some of there workmanship skills are not up to par.


I saw a Blazer Bay one day that was being worked on. I will not say where but one of the people from Blazer Bay was accompanying it and dropped it off.



As I strolled around the boat looking it over, I came across a potential problem.



The problem was the Hyd hoses and how they routed to the ram on the Bobs Machine shop Jackplate. The machining on these jackplates is very good, but the hoses need a "Boot" IE: another piece of hose to cover and insulate the hyd hoses on the sharp corner.



I own 2 Bob's machine shop Jackplates, so I'm aware of this potential problem to blowing a hose. It's a simple / preventive maintenance fix.



I pointed this out to the Blazer Bay person.



He pretty much said " He couldn't give a shit and it wasn't his responsibility."



Attitude like that is what kills a business and I can see where the complaints would come in with " there workmanship skills are not up to par."

Thats the main reason I wouldnt own one is there customer service and the way they act, Ive heard and seen a few different scenarios with it.

http://www.capehornboats.com/page17.html Since other boats have come into the thread you need to check out the cape horn bay boat. I visited their showroom in milton and and it is impressive. May not be the fastest boat out there but it is a Cape Horn so you know the build quality is top notch. The one in the showroom is 29 thousand without motor.

I looked at their website the other day. It has a few pics of their brand new bay boat. Awesome looking boat, but a 15" draft will just never do!!!!!

This Cape Horn is a weird animal.

They contradict themselves.



15in to 18in draft and then say.



The lack of forward strakes under the bow provides a new level of stealth when gliding the flats. Gone are the days of hull slap announcing your arrival.




News Flash Cape Horn:



Flat's are shallow and that is not a shallow draft boat.



My '73 Mako hull doesn't draft that much.
