SOLD !!!!! 1998 Ranger 17ft bass boat. Repairable CHEAP !!! SOLD !!!!

14 posts in this topic

1998 Ranger 17ft bass boat. It was involved in an accident, motor has been removed, trailer is not in good shape at all but boat has no major damage except cosmetic, hull is good.

It has a Lowrance sonar, livewells, rod lockers, etc.

It's a great project for this winter. It's rated 130hp max, and if you want I have an older Johnson 120hp from the '80s I can let go cheap.

You will have to straighten trailer or getter a new one, but it is NOT towable.

Price at $ 1300 or best offer. Email me for pictures.

I will take pics tomorrow, I have to take it to a carwash, traveling through a storm it got a little " salted" crazy.gif

Damage to hull is just scrapes and small gouges, nothing serious.

Trailer goes in the scrap pile, there's nothing good, not even the rims, well maybe the winch, but the strap was cut.

Pics sent.

Boat model is a R71 Sport

I just want everybody to know this is not a jewel boat, it has scratches, dings etc, but it's a solid hull, if you want a fast and comfortable boat to fish from and want to save some money doing a little work, this is a great deal, after all it's a Ranger. You can have trailer if you want but it will be a nuisance to haul, in my opinion.

Very interested. Could you send me pics of the damage & the older 120 hp motor you have? How much for the 120 hp? Where Are you located? I am guessing I would need another trailer to get her home? robertkarlgaard@hotmail.com

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
