    Blazer 202 pro v damaged

    Well went to Toledo Bend earlier this week and found a stump with rebar drove into the top of it with a catfish line connected to it. The rebar ripped a 3 ft long hole in my boat. Gave the bilge pump a good workout on the way back to the launch! Boat was taking water fast but between the bilge and the flotation it was a easy idle back to the launch. Bummed about the boat but at least me and my fishing buddy didn't have to get wet. I'll never understand someone that drives nails or rebar into these tree tops to catch catfish, knowing they are tearing up peoples boats. Long story short we did catch fish, and I'll have a repairable Blazer 202 pro v for sale soon. Boat is a 1996.

    That sucks man, don't think it'll cost you too much. Covered under insurance if the repairs are more than you want to pay out of pocket

    Well, decided to build a aluminum jump boat. Pulling pumps and troller and gauges off the 202. If anyone wants a repairable hull contact me at 9859813599 Richard call or text. $750 no trailer. Your getting hull and cap with carpet and seats. No pumps, no steering, no trolling motor.

    that is typical TB trot liners. Was probably done when lake was down and they never gave a thought about water coming up over the rebar. Caddo lake with all thesucker rods is another one that will destroy a boat. I speak from experience. A word to the wise about TB. Stay in the boat roads if on plane. You can just run Willy Billy there.
