Default Thoughts on the 224 Blackjack with 175 Mercury?

Looking for your thoughts and or from any current Blackjack owners?


I was at the Biloxi boat show today and the price I was offered for the 224 with the new 175 Mer is pretty much irresistible. The salesman stated the boat with the Mercury will run around 45mph.


My questions to all are:
1- What is the stats of those that have the 224 (MPH, MPG, Size motor)?
2- they will put a 200 Suzuki on the back for the same price... Thoughts?


2- I hear everyone state that this boat rides better than any other bay boat and can handle rough weather.


I run from Biloxi to Chandeleur and if/when caught in a storm I am looking to see what I can expect. I have only owned deep-V boats, and fished on one bay boat.
