Lund is going into fiberglass

8 posts in this topic

Not sure if many of you have yet seen the new Lund 1750 Tyee but it looks alot like a Ranger. I talked with a dealer (Nelson Marine) and apparently Lund is returning to fiberglass to try to grab from the ranger reata market. The boat looks nice. Just wondering what you Lund owners think about it? Makes sense to me as well as if they can build the same quality into their fiberglass as they do into their aluminum, they should sell well. But there are other opinions, I am sure....

I like the look of it and think lund will do a good job with it. When your dealing with lund, you probably get the best for your money. Just my .02$.

Walleye Joe, what kind of boat do you use? I believe you that Lund's are expensive. However, I think the quality and the resale value are worth the cost. I have owned a Tyee 1850, Tyee 1950 and now a Baron Gran Sport. I have always liked the look of the Ranger boat but wanted to buy Minnesotan.....

We have a 1950 Tyee and like it a lot. There are some downfalls to that boat, but all and all it does the job. I do think they could look at some of the ranger storage ideas and improve the Lund a bit. I also have had some problems with the snaps and compartments breaking (the hardware).

i actually have a 2002 lund pro-v SE 2025. with all the bells and whistles. the only reason lund is making the fiberglass is because they are under new ownership from brunswick, which in terms mean we have no control over what they may do next with those beautiful double riveted hulls. DONT'T GET ME WRONG I LOVE MY LUND. i have been in some serious rollers with that thing and felt safer than i would in my own bed. they know how to make a boat. but the new owners are scaring me with the fiberglass.

I think it brings another nice division to an already successful boat manufacturer. It's part of the signs of the times.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
