Isle of Palm Marine Service Intro and 08 202 210 GPS Numbers

Postby Isle of Palms » Tue Dec 11, 2007 2:44 pm

Isle of Palms Marine Service in Orange Park, Fl has recently become a Blazer Bass dealer and wanted to share a little info with everyone about us and provide you guys with some GPS numbers on a few of our 2008 stock boats.

The Orange Park location was created in January of 2003 as a sister to the original Isle of Palms Marine Service located at Palm Cove Marina in Jacksonville Beach, Fl. My name is Bryan Nettles. I've been with the company for a little over two years now. I started out as the Lot Manager (glorified term for boat washer :) ) and have moved my way up to Parts Manager. Jason Burcham is our Service Manager and part owner, he has been with the company since the start. Jeff Reedy is a Mercury Master Tech, general outboard guru, and part owner. He has 18 years of experience in the marine industry. Part of the reason we are a Blazer dealer is because Jeff loves bass fishing and bass boats so much. They are one of his favorite things to work on. Kevin Price is our sterndrive tech, he has been with this company for a few years and with the beach location for a few years as well. Mike White is our rigger and is a new addition as of February 2007, so far he's working out great! Also recently hired was my mother, Bonnie, to act as bookkeeper. We're a big family at all four locations and like to keep it fun when we work!

Ok enough about the company you guys just want to see some numbers!

We currently have four bass boats in stock. A 180 with a V150TLR, 190 with a VZ200TLR, 202 with a 225 Pro XS, and a 210 with a 250 Pro XS. Since it's the winter time here in Florida (oddly it is 80 degrees so it deosnt feel like it) we are slower than usual and Jeff got the itch to run some fast boats. The 210 did 81.3 on the GPS (5950-6000 rpm, fully rigged "out of the box", no gear, 12 gallons of gas in tanks, 1 driver, sunny, light chop, high 70s, light wind) and the 202 did 78.7 on the GPS (5950-6000 rpm, fully rigged "out of the box", no gear, 5 gallon shop tank, 1 driver, sunny, glassy water, high 70s, light wind). Both of these have Bob's 10in hydraulic jackplates and 27 Tempest Plus props. Remember that these are not broken in either. Around 40 hours they tend to free up and gain 1 to 2 mph on the Pro XS. Obviously your experience may vary.

If you guys ever have any questions ask away and we'll see if we can answer them.

Thanks
Bryan

That's a link to the UN-EDITED photos I took of Jeff air'n out the 202. Ya it's hard to hit perfect focus with a 400mm lense when a boat is doin almost 80 :D .

Oops, forgot that. They both run the standard prop from Blazer, 27P Tempest Plus.

Well I hope they get you straightened out because that boat should be running around 85. If they cant and you're in the area Jeff would love to run a 210 with a 300XS :D

Fully loaded, livewells and all ya 85 to 86.. should be right at 89 to 90 running like your run in that 210.. Keith ran that 202 and it was stock 300 xs to 90.1 and that boat isn't much lighter at all.. from what I was told at birth the 210 weighs less then the 202 with out the lids on..

On the hydraulic jackplate height Jeff plays with it until water pressure starts to drop off then brings it back down a little.

I'm sorry you had to hold so long, he was on the phone with a customer.

Thanks
Bryan
