Discussion of Blazer's line of Bay boats.

Stress Cracks

Postby 1mallard » Wed Apr 09, 2008 10:08 am

calling all 2220 owners. Just got off the phone with the owner of Dawson Marine in Houston. I called because im in the market for a new bay boat and the blazer 2220 pro is getting about 90% of my votes at the moment. I knew that Dawson had carried Blazer Bay and wanted to talk about prices. Aftyer a lengthy conversation with the owner he told me that he discontinued the Blazer bay line of boats because of the amount of stress cracks he was seeing on the 2220. his reasoning behind this problem was too little fiberglass on the cap which resulted in stress cracks at the corners. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this problem. any comments on the contruction quatlity of the boat would be appreciated. I just recently sold my 186 rolled gunnel blazer bay and loved it. Fished out of it for 8 years. Thanks

I've had 6 2220's, both Professional and Fisherman models, with a 7th presently on order. I have fished 250-300 days a year in a Blazer for the last 6 years and have never had stress cracks on the transom on any of them. Sounds like Dealer BS.

Bought my 2420 from Dawson a year ago. Blazer told me that they dropped Dawson because of some trouble and with my dealings with Dawson, I believe Blazer!!!! No stress cracks so far.
