Back in 09 I was pricing some and a 16' 48" Blazer SS with long gussets all aluminuim transom, 48" deck and a cross bench was right at $2000 the sports about a $100 less and I think the normal blazers a $100 cheaper then that. The all aluminuim transom are around a $100 extra but they're worth it in my opinion. Breat boats, I love mine.

i ordered a blazer in late 09. 18'56" . .100 hull, 27 inch transom, extended front deck with storage, flotation, gas tank, console w steering and guages, seating, solid floor and carpeted throughout, livewell,wired up, bilge pump, etc all i had to do was have a engine slapped on and a trailer under it. paid right at 5700 ready to roll. To have it polished was an extra 300 and genuis me thought it'd be worth it to do it myself. boy was i wrong. let blazer polish that son of a gun definitely worth 300. the little things jumped the price a bunch. i think the difference between a 17 and a 18 foot was about 600 bucks. livewell was around 400 extra. i was happy with it. bought the boat from Aarons boats and motors in rolla and my engine from troutt and sons in st james. I wanted to use troutt for all of it but aarons could order me a boat bare and build it how i wanted it, and troutt couldnt do it how i wanted it.

That sucks, I see you see to be missing a little off the top of your motor there. Good luck with the sale.

Yea, lost crank bearings last weekend. Cylinders need rehoned and new rings with one new piston and the new bearings it'll be good to go. Just got other things I need to do with the money. I'll sell boat and trailer or whole package.

MMMM, a RiverPro, VERY nice... and your just across the river from me! I think you should take me for a spin on that beast!

Heres my jet rig.

Set up to handle the skinny water as best as possible.
Started life as a SeaArk 1660.
Extended front deck for a larger casting deck and so I could get my trolling motor batteries up front to distribute the weight better.
Extended rear deck for a larger casting deck and for a HUGE amount of storage under the new extension.
Stand up front CC build and installed by Snyder.
Tunnel cut into the bottom, installed by Snyder.
Powered by a merc 60/40

She's not the fastest boat on the water at around 27-29mph, but she runs flat and shallow, and get on plane in a HURRY

Kory,

I remember your build from the old RiverSmallies forum. I remember your build all the way throughout the process. AND, I remember how bummed you were when you put that first dent in it after your rebuild!

If I remember correctly didn't you have a previous build of another boat on the watercraft forum also?

Anytime you want to take the RiverPro for a spin...let me know. But be forewarned....you will never look at your boat the same way again! I can see you pulling double shifts at work, scrimping and saving every penny until one day you can make that trip to Missouri to get your own RiverPro! :LOL2:

Seriously though, if you want to see it give me a shout.

Dave

If you ever get to Missouri to pick up a River Pro,Give me a holler. I live about 20 min. from their shop. We could hook up for some small river fishing before you head back.
