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

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?
