I have never ridden in a boat that performed equally as well as a "C" boat until I rode in a 520. I was so impressed, I bought one and am still delighted with my purchase evertime I get to take it out.
Thank you and good fishing,
I love my ranger
I have a 1988 Ranger 350V and love it. It still performs at a very high level everytime out. I would love to have a new Ranger. But everytime I get serious, I walk out in my garage and take one look at my old buddy. And that's the end of that.
It's amazing how well my Ranger has held up over the years. Everything on it is original.
Forrest, they don't have anything on you, my friend.
I love my Ranger
When I purchased my first bass boat, I wouldn't settle for second best. I had to own a Ranger.
This decision has been a very smart one, since now I am fishing federation tournaments across the mid-west.
The boat performs flawlessly and has become my best fishing partner. I have been caught in some wild storms and made it in (floating) when others weren't so lucky.
Own the best and laugh at the rest, own and love a Ranger. I do. A 1995 R 72
Quality Personal Time
I purchased a new Ranger 195 DVS with a Yamaha 200 HPDI December of 2002, and the break-in period is over.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is quality time. I just bought a second home on Lake Fork in Texas which is known for it's quality lunkers and, unfortunately, stumps.
I was nervous with my new pride and joy. My brother-in-law and myself fished the entire March 22, 23, 24 weekend and did experience several stumps while learning the cuts and coves.
My brother-in-law ownes a Ranger and told me, "Don't worry. That's why I told you Ranger is the only choice for the type of fishing your going to do."
While trolling through a stump mind field we got stuck on a stump that the trolling motor just would not free us from. I'm in my brand new boat and Mark said, "Fire up the big motor and throw it in reverse." With a crazy look on my face I said, "We're in my boat now and your out of your mind."
Quote from Mark "Your not in a "S" or a "BC" boat. Get us out of here. Walt, on the way home, look at the fiberglass shop with no Rangers in it. Rangers are built for lakes like Fork".
The rest of the day was relaxed, safe, and confident. The way I feel in this boat going 65 mph with my glasses pined up against my face is unexplainable. It's a release like no other. For those of you in the beginning of the season, in a decision making mode, don't make the mistake of saving a few bucks on brand X. When, in a Ranger, you will feel like a million. Besides feeling like a million take a look at your boat trader, there is a reason Rangers hold their value longer.
Forrest when in Texas call me. I owe you a great day out on Lake Fork and a cold drink at the end of the day for your quality and craftmanship.
I have owned my Ranger for about a year and a half. It is the best boat I have ever ridden in or drove.
Thank you for making boating the best it could be.
Second New Ranger
Several years ago I had the priviledge of fishing in a friends Ranger Boat. I had owned several boats by then and decided that my next boat would be a Ranger.
In April of 1997 I found my dream boat - a 97 Ranger R-72. This boat handled so well I thought I would never sell or trade it. All my friends and family loved this boat. I never dreamed that I would ever own another new Ranger.
This spring I started looking at new boats and was even considering buying another brand. I didn't want to leave the Ranger Family but money was an issue. Then, just about the time I decided to purchase another brand, my wife told me I could not buy another new boat unless it was a Ranger.
She said she knew I would not be happy with another brand and she felt safe in our Ranger. Thanks to her I now own a new 617. This will probably be my last new boat but that's what I said the last time ???
Thanks to Ranger, building quality and safety into your boats made it possible for me to be lucky enough to own two Rangers in my lifetime.
I Love Ranger Boats, you folks at Ranger keep up the good work.
I Love my Ranger
I've owned my 1996 Ranger Sport R72 for about 4 months now, and I love it. It is my first boat. Boy what a way to start off. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Thanks Ranger for building a quality affordable boat. Special thanks to J & J Marine in Oak Grove, AL. for selling me this great boat.
Hope everyone has a chance to experience a Ranger, because then it will be all they want to own.
another year another new ranger
I am picking up my new 521 Ranger Cup on Saturday and I have to tell you Ranger has never let me down. But more importantly, the staff at Bedford Sales has always exceeded my expectations and has never let me down.
It is nice to buy a boat from a dealer that equals the quality and service that a Ranger boat delivers.
I traded my 2000 518 in on a 2001 520 then traded for a 2002 205 and now a 2003 521. On everyone of those transactions, not only did I get awesome performance and realiability from the boats, but I received that and more from the team at Bedford Sales in Morris ,IL.
Thanks Ranger Boats!
I have wanted a Ranger for as long as I can remember and finally I had the opportunity to get one.
I have a 2002 195 dual console with 200hp Merc and so far I have loved every minute of it... first trip out I had a limit in the well and it ended up being the best fishing day I have ever had...both because of the fish and the comfort of fishing out of a real boat...
No more look-a-likes for me...EVER!!! Thanks Ranger
My 1996 R70
Iwould like to thank all the employees that work in the Service Department at Ranger for the GREAT work they have done on my '96 R70. As I expected my boat came back looking like it did the day I first purchased it.
I am so proud to own a Ranger and that Ranger does stand by their boats. Their loyalty to their Ranger owners is as good as GOLD!!
Thank you, especially to Mike Shelton, for all your help. It's your attitude and sincerity that shows what Ranger is all about and makes us proud to be Ranger owners.
Thank You Again:
James B./Brenda W.
A special "thanks" to Sonja and Howard at Lake Sara Marina in Effingham Illinois for all of their help in locating my Commanche 518.
They are what owning a Ranger Dealership should be.
WHAT A CADILLAC
HELLO RANGER OWNERS!
I JUST PURCHASED A 1996 482VS COMANCHE WITH A 1996 175 MERCUCY EFI MOTOR. THIS BOAT LOOKS BRAND NEW AND NOT A SCRATCH ON IT! I CAN NOT BELIVE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT RANGER HAS DONE.IT'S NOT THE FASTEST BOAT ON THE LAKE BUT IT HAS ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLE I'LL EVER NEED.
PLEASE TEST DRIVE A RANGER BEFORE BUYING ANOTHER BOAT. IT'S WORTH THE WAIT.
THANKS RANGER FOR MAKING MY BASS FISHING COME TRUE. WHAT A GREAT STEREO AND WHAT A GREAT CADILLAC.
