You hit the advantages of a Ranger but maybe should have left out the "FAST" part.

Ike, if I were in a skeeter, and you in a ranger, I'd be smoking you...

yall are a bunch of spoilt babies. Ain't nothing has more power, more leg room, more stability, more storage, easier to work on, more manueverable than my 9 foot jon boat with one paddle. nevermind the fact that 8 inch waves will crash over the bow of the boat causing it to quickly fill with water.

ahhh you're a pansy too, motors are for people too pansy to paddle

actually I think I'm gonna start a guide service just so I have a couple helpers to paddle me around the lake

ok, ok, all joking aside, just goes to show a 30k boat isn't needed to catch fish.

I like my Champion but I still drool at the sight of those Rangers. Wish my Deck was a bit wider, but performance and handling wise I love my ride.

Ridden in a Triton and wasn't impressed. Skeeters feel small to me Rangers feel heavy but smooth Nitros...ick.

Can't argue with that but they sure are fun and much more enjoyable to fish out of. I caught just as many fish in my jon boat and my 15ft. Lund as I do now. What I do like is the sturdy deck to cast from and until you have storage you will not know how you made it without it. I had a Nitro before my Ranger and I thought it was a good boat. Not as well constructed as my Ranger but handled well and fished nice.

I was out on the lake yesterday and the wind was howling pretty good. Some of the smaller boats couldn't deal with the whitecaps and had to come in or hit the bays. My heavy Ranger did just fine.

Thumbs up skeeter best boat???????????????/

I have a 06 TR20x with a 225xs. this boat is fast, and smooth. those who say tritons are the worst ride, must never fish big water.. (great lakes) I am in green bay wi the water is tough on boats up here. if you think it is scary at top end you need to learn how to set up your rig. all boats made are good, but some are above the rest. triton, skeeter, champs, in my book.

Default Just an opinion an we all know what those are like

Several questions come into play with this

What does your wallet say

What type fishing are you doing

What type storage do you need

The rest is purely up to the one who is paying the bill

I personally love in order

Ranger

Champion

Allison

Stratos


Now we all know what deciding question made my decision
