I haven't been on the BBC in a while and just noticed the Fish n Ski forum. Finally a place for us family guys to hang out. You all got a bunch of nice looking rigs. Here is a picture of mine. This unfortunately is a picture the previous owner took the week before I bought it from him. We don't take a lot of pictures of it, just of what we catch out of it.
We love the boat and all the room. It is a 99 Model with a 99 Johnson 200 on the back. I have upgraded the electronics, new 3 bank charger, new aluminum fenders, 6" Ritehite jackplate, 8' Keel Guard and a 80lb MinnKota Max Pro.
Got out of the bass boat game after my twins were born in 2000. Decided to get back in this year but no way the wife was letting me get a two seater so went with a fish and ski. Had a serious case of sticker shock when I started looking at new so decided to go the used route. After six months of searching, found this.
2004 Ranger Reata 210 VS with a 200 Evinrude RAM Ficht. The thing is a tank. Not the fastest on the water but more than enough to ski, tube and get to my fishing hole. Hope to build many happy memories with the kids over the next 6-8 years.
