Hey y'all, I'm posting my classic for sale. I am not in a hurry to sell it, but if the right deal comes along I would do it.
1987 Ranger 393v Comanche w/ double axle trailer (19'3")
2004 Mercury xr6 150hp (hours unknown, but if I had to guess, 250 maximum)

Professionally wet sanded and buffed 6 months ago
Trailer tires 1 year old
Two optima blue top trolling motor batteries
New live well pumps 6 months ago

Original upholstery (got to keep some of the classic in her)
I am sure I am forgetting some other goodies, she has had a makeover in the past couple of years.
This boat is reliable. She isn't the fastest, but she starts every single time and I have never had any problems with her. I have run her from the KY Lake dam all the way down New Johnsonville in a College tournament (140 miles round trip), and had 100% confidence the entire time. They don't make them like they used to! I generally run her around 40-45 miles per hour and at 4200 RPMs, but I have seen 60.4 GPS with me and a light load.
With any boat of this age, there will be a few things that aren't perfect, so they are listed here.
There are a few cracks on the bench seat of the main seat
There is a chip out of the passenger windshield
Speedometer doesn't work
Starboard fuel gauge doesn't work
There are a few dents and dings in the gelcoat, but that is to be expected
Trailer fenders have some spider cracks, and still need to be detailed
That is all I can think of, but I am going to be 100% up front about everything with her if the right buyer comes along.
Like I said, I am not in a hurry to sell her. I would love to sell her as a package, and am not interested in taking off the Power Poles or graphs at this time.
Asking $14,750 OBO
The only reason I am selling is to get a bigger boat for more serious tournament fishing. My dream (like most people's here) is to make it to the Elite's, and I can't do that and be competitive with co-anlgers and what not in this boat. If I was solely a small tournament or recreational fisherman, I wouldn't be selling her. I get compliments wherever I go, she is a classic and truly one of a kind. I don't have a ton of pictures on hand right now, but I can send more upon request. Please reach out with any questions, my number is 512-422-1752.
