95 Ranger 488 VS 26" Turbo, Lowrance LMS 350A, Lowrance X75,   Silver Ranger - KY
95 200 Merc EFI Motorguide Brute 765. "Owned since new. Have thought   
  about updating, but was told by Ranger Rep that this boat   
  has a better ride than newer ones. I may upgrade electronics  
  tho. I once had a wave come over the bow and go over our  
  heads, completely filling my 488 with water. The motor never  
  stalled, I hit the bilge pump switch, gunned the throttle and the  
  water went out the back. This baby stayed upright. Knowing   
  we were in a Ranger kept us from panicking. A lesser boat   
  might not have faired as well. As one said before, "Once a   
  Ranger owner, always a Ranger owner. Don't settle for less."

  I basically got every Ranger option except the hot foot.  
  It's a dual console, CD player, ladder, cover, swing tongue,  
  lighted compartments, Hamby's SRS seats, hydro jackplate,  
  tandem trailer. I've been very impressed with the speed,

  68.1 with regular load. Impressively enough the boat will  
  run about 66.5 with three people, full tank, cooler full,
