Could be our San Antonio BPS just sucks, which it does; but today I saw that they have 3 brand new Tritons in there. Couldn’t believe my eyes.

I saw that too yesterday Mike. Surprisingly I went in there for 2 specific things and they had it. That 19 TRX looked pretty good!

Yeah but some are produced better, Ranger has gone to sh#t since WRM took over they've been Nitroized and this is the truth.

Well, I know it wasn’t jackhammers, because they had none! (As usual) It is an odd day and kind of spooky when you do find something in stock.

It was the first time I’ve seen a Triton up close, they look like they’d deflect side splash waves very well. Front box looked huge, price seemed very reasonable. That rear splashwell took my by surprise, I guess it keeps the backwash off the deck. I’m starting to wonder if I saw the price correctly, it was $52-$53k, right???

Gimme a break, zero truth in that. I've crawled all over a bunch of new Rangers, they get better every year, most boat brands do. Nothing wrong with Nitro either.

What boat isn't made on an assembly line?

We got my 1997 Triton new off the showroom floor and have been running it for 24 years. In that time, here's what I've had to do to it:

One minor fiberglass gash repair - $750
One power pack - $150
One VRO pump - $600
One trolling motor foot switch (just replaced last week) - $25
One trolling motor control board - $140
Three new sets of tires - $450 each

Other than that, she's been flawless.

None of those repairs are Tritons problems! Sounds like you got a good boat. The motors and other stuff bolted onto the boat can the the same on any boat.

you have a real Earl Bentz Triton boat not a modern day Johnny Morris low bid assembly boat.

Huge difference. Ask the long time Ranger guys, that are jumping ship, how the quality and customer service is now compared to pre-johnny

All of the boats are still functional and will float, just not what they were when the original companies and employees built them
