I'm looking into buying a Ranger RT178, is anyone running one of these or have any information? I fish medium to big lakes but don't need anything that is super fast or can take on big waters. Thanks ahead of time!

I have a 2014 RT188, 115 Merc, and a Terrova 80. sips gas, runs 45mph, and handles great. Only problem I've had was the trailer lights leaked, Ranger dealer swapped them out with a upgraded set, no more problems.
I seriously considered the Aluminum Ranger prior to buying my new to me kitty kat... the padded hull makes for a great ride and the storage and deck space was really nice and roomy. Go to Cabellas in Mckinney and hop in one to get good feel. Really nice boat.
Catching big Bass is all I think about!
I run a Ranger glass boat and my dealer was telling me the other day that they were having to do lots of repairs on the Ranger aluminum boats. Specifically the weld on the very nose of the bow cracking and spreading. Not sure how big of a problem it is but something to consider.
Gator Trax is the Cadillac of tin boats. Made from 3/16 aluminum and you can have one made to your specs. That 21 footer is a beast.
