I'm old school and been fishing 49 years, 4 boats and the 4th boat is a 1994 Ranger VS482. Everything works including the 175 Merc I rebuilt myself last year for $1200. Everything on the boat works and believe it or not, the gel coat still shines. You don't need a new boat if the old one still works and is maintained.

The only difference between now and 50 years ago is, there is a hell of a lot more fisherman trying to fish the same water. Not to mention, all of them are going WOFT to get there. Amazing how things have changed and amazing to watch them fly by into a cove. Then fly out of the cove 15 minutes later....
