I finally got the new boat in a couple days ago. She rides great, I am very impressed with all the details Ranger puts into their boats...they've literally thought of everything.



I had a couple hours before my afternoon trip yesterday to "Christen" the boat...found a willing 25" red to baptize the new ride! Caught it on the flats in about 2 feet on the new aqua dream spoon (gold 3/8 oz).

Great looking boat Captain. I know you will love the quality and handling of it. I have a 2003 Ranger Bay 2300 and it has beena real pleasure to own.

jimmyjams4110 (4/1/2010)Even has a swim platform! DANG! It's officially Crab Island Capable.
Ha! I was thinking about my kid climbing back in the boat after swimming...you're thinking about bikini babes climbing in at Crab Island!!! I love your thinking, Jimmy!!! And I'm planning on scheduling my trips around the party in June so I can atleast come out for a couple hours.

He actually is getting the same exact boat (with the exception of color) in a couple weeks...it's being built right now. He's getting a Yamaha 250 2-stroke HPDI put on and we're going to rig it out for tournament fishing.

I've heard good things about the Ghost...everyone I've spoken with that owns one loves it. I've been out every day that I've had the Ranger so far and I keep findingmore things I love about it. For the past two days I've fished the flats and the boatgets in some pretty skinny water! I keep thinking we're going to get stuck and we just keep plugging along.
