Ranger RT188P storage length with jack plate #13675841 08/21/20 06:15 PM

Looking at buying a new RT188P, decked out w/ the Mercury Pro SX and Power Pole option. However, having difficulty finding out the overall storage length (tongue swung open) in the configuration after speaking with 2 different dealers and White River Marine Group (Ranger parent company). I have 22' 2" to work with in the garage in my current home.

It's my understanding Ranger offers either a Manual Jack Plate (reported to be 6" setback) or the TH Marine Micro Jacker (website lists 4" setback). Youtuber Mike Gilbert over at Working Class Zero posted a video about his new RT188P. He was kind enough to respond to an email I sent and said he went with the manual jack plate and it didn't quite fit his 22' garage straight in.

Ranger reports the storage length w/out jack plate to be 21' 8". Anyone have a similarly equipped RT188P that could possibly measure and confirm the actual storage lenght?

Thanks much!

For it to be that short it would have to be with the outboard trimmed down.

I am looking at a storage building and mine measures almost 24' with the motor up, no jack plate, and the tongue folded.

Wow! Quite a bit longer than the 21' 8" Ranger claims on their website. Thanks much!

I would guess it would close to what they say if I trimmed it down and turned to the side.

I have never measured it with it down but if I get a chance I will go take it out of storage and measure it. cheers
