Was reading a thread on the tin boats forum, someone mentioned the new Ranger alum. boats were going to be built on the Triton alum. Hulls. Any truth to that? I hope this new line is not just a triton/crestliner/lowe hull with a ranger name on the side. Since Brunswick owns Triton Alum./crestliner/lowe/lund , is Platnium Equity purhasing any alum. companies from Brunswick? Because I was under the impression Ranger was set to produce their own alum. boats, hiring new workers in the process.
What I'd like to see in a new Ranger alum. boat
deeper insulated livewells
standard recess TM pedal
a nice console with flush mount say at least a 597 size graph/gps
The center and port rod locker like thier glass boats have with the deck extending all the way back.
a Quality trailer, if so this will be an industry 1st alum. boat with a quality trailer
a quality Ranger boat cover option
Just overall fit and finish , and creature comfort layouts that make sense for the weekend angler.
