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.

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

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
