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

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
