Every year a newer this and a newer that is on the market. Mine is a 2010. But, to me the best looking and most interesting Ranger Boat is one where you can see the owners commitment to taking care of his rig year after year. I love to see those older models shining like a new penny. So, if you have time and have an older boat that you love, that lacks "LED" and HDS and poles, etc, SHOW IT OFF in this post. I love to see them and am proud to see your "baby" in great condition.
