Yes, that is the price I was quoated with the 115 Yamaha and the stuff you mentioned. I was wondering if better deals can be made at boat shows?

I don't have a 1960, but I do have the 1860 and I can attest to the seaworthiness of these boats.
I live in Southern California and have made multiple 100+ mile round trips to offshore islands on my boat.
When fishing a tournament earlier this year, I made a 30 mile run in 4-6 foot seas with 15-20 MPH wind blowing and the boat ran unbelievably well. Due to the conditions, I could only run the boat at 20-25 MPH, but that's to be expected.
Three other teams made the same run (two in 24 foot Skeeter bay boats and the other in a 29 foot Everglades center console) and the most amazing part was that while our ride was on the rough side we stayed dry, but the guys in the bigger boats came back drenched and said that they got the sh!t kicked out of them...
I've fished on a lot of 17-20 foot boats over the years (Parker, Mako, Whaler, Key West, etc.) and I can say without a doubt that the Blazer is the nicest running boat of it's size that I've ever seen.
If I were you, I'd buy the boat. You're going to be happy with it!

Thanks for the response! I've heard that the 1860 is a sea worthy little boat. I'm guessing the 1960 should be a tad better when it comes to riding a chop.

I have the 1960 with a F150. Love it. Incredible ride that is vey dry due to the rolled edge.

blazinbay-- What is your top speed with the F150? What kind of prop do you have on it? What is the pitch of the prop?

I have not done anything with the prop yet and still turn the stock Yamaha Reliance Series 13 3/4 x 19. She will run mid 50's right now. I would like to play around to see if I could get a little more out of her but so far, I have been real pleased with the set-up.

How stable is the 1960 while walking around? With 3 guys on one side? How much does it rock left to right?

I am not a big fella but fish (3) people regularly and have never had any concern about all (3) being to one side or the other. The boat is very stable.

Blazinbay, How well has your 1860 been holding up? How long you have been having your boat?
