For 2020, we've taken one of the best-selling and best-performing aluminum bass rigs and added even more tournament-ready capability. An all-new pad-bottom hull delivers greater performance and handling in conjunction with an offset transom that accepts dual Power-Poles with a jackplate. Plus, an all-new keel design delivers greater strength and rigidity than ever. The front deck is ripe with new features but retains the same extra-wide design that delivers superior stability and space for anglers and gear. Other, more narrow designs are cramped and have you stepping on rods all day. Also added to this proven platform is a new fiberglass bow panel that flush-mounts electronics up to 9" front and center, which lies at the perfect angle for easy viewing. A new port side rod box holds sticks up to 7' while the center stow carries rods up to 8' 6". An insulated cooler rides in front of the console and just aft of a lockable storage box. The underside of every lid features foam insulation. The cockpit gained twin footboards and a storage step to the front deck, while the gas tank has been moved under the seats, freeing up more space in the bilge for pumps, props and batteries. Storage boxes in the rear deck have been enlarged to carry more gear than ever. Finally, the Ranger Trail™ trailer gained diamond plate panels for rugged good looks and extra traction. The all-new RT188p is nothing short of Next-Generation Domination.
