I've always sworn by Ranger, but will never support/refer Ranger again in my life. They seem to have gone out of their way to learn how to cheap'n their product. The new comanche I bought is half the quality of the old reliable Ranger I just sold. They still make a great hull, they just decorate it like a homeless man's Christmas tree. Everything on that boat has rattled loose in the first few months. It's already been in the shop umpteen times, and I have a collection of items in the glove box to be re-attached as soon as I can stand not fishing for a few days.
Desert Cajun, if you don't want it I guess I could take it off your hands . I'm hoping someday soon I'll be the owner of a buetiful bass boat and be able to fish in a tournament like this, or any tournament for that matter. Josh
