I recently had a dead tree fall onto my property from Tropical Storm Ida. It fell across
both of my boats. A Blazer Bay 2170 & a G3 1548FL. My G3 was totaled out less the motor.
The Blazer suffered minor damage on the fiberglass, but it crushed the bow rail on one side.
I contacted the Blazer factory & found that they no longer make the same bow rail. The newer
ones are a little fancier. When I spoke to Lonnie he felt that the new one's should fit like the
one's that were on my boat. I purchased my boat new in 2005. Anyway when I arrived at the factory
this am I found that Lonnie had to deliver a boat out of town. They called Keith to help me out.
I had first class service. He explained that since my boat has been built that they have probably
had a few different styles of bow rails. He was afraid that the holes might not line up exactly as the
original bow rails. When I measured they were awfully close, and he agreed that as long as they were
okay if I decided to bring them back it was okay.
He also said that Blazer could fill in the holes & remount the bow rails for what I thought was a
reasonable amount of money. I could not have asked for better service. In fact, Keith was kind enough
to load them in my truck & tie them down when I went in to pay Kelly. Everyone that I have ever dealt
with at Blazer Boats has been first class. Its a pleasure to do business with someone who cares &
takes the time to make sure you are content with your purchase.
