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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
