Great boat C-rig! Question though, did you add the board for the second pole or did it come that way. Never seen that before....

Thats a hotfoot. It takes your throttle speed adjustment and makes it, well, just prettry much like a car. Its a good convienience and its also safer because should you be thrown out of the boat, the pedal has a spring which will take the boat back to idle.

yep, plus it and the pro trim allows you to keep both hands on the wheel all the time.

i love mine so far. only taken it out twice though. great holeshot. can't wait to get it out on a calm day. but i ain't one to go fast alot. what i really like is how much wider it is than the old 86 stratos, and a larger casting deck in front. gonna need a bigger tm though. the one on it is 56 lb thrust. gonna get a 76 next year. but ifn you wanna trade.................haha. call me ifn you do, lmao.

Nice Rig the bud. Gimme some pics of where she bolts up to the transom and gimme the specs on the prop. There is more there in that boat with no more cost than some time turning a wrench.

Mont Lunk Hunter

The Nissan is a good dependable motor from what I have heard. Do you have tghe stainless prop????? Your speed lacks somewhat but I am comparing to motors that will spin up more rpms and are actually somewhat stoughter. I do know of several 140 OMC motors that will give some 200 Mercs a run for there money. Need to know where the motor is bolted to the transom and prop size on the 140 and what epms you are turning at WOT and I will do a little homework and get back to ya.

Very nice boat. My dad has a 2002 21' Ranger with a 225 Optimax and it will run 70 mph loaded, with 2 people.

Great Looking Boat I Love The Look Of That Series Of Boat I Am Lookin At A R81 Right Now It Has A 150 Mercury. I Was Just Wondering How The Ride Is. Storage Looks Pretty Good And I Figured You Can Not Go Wrong With A Ranger.

the boat looks good. i have noticed lately that a lot of 20' boats come with single axle trailers. i am currently in the market for something in the 20' range and a lot of the boats come with single axle. i really would like a dual but the skeeter i am possibly getting is a single axle, sucks but as long as it get the boat to the water it works for me

less tires to replace, wheel bearings to deal with, and brakes to screw with. but i know what you mean, i really wanted and expected a tandem axel trailer but the single axel does really well.
