  "Picking boat up on Sunday 9/16/01. Saphire deck and hull  
  with Platinum pin and stripes. No idea what WOT will bring,  
  guessing somewhere in the mid 60's.  Looked at a lot of   
  boats between 7-7 (when my other 487 got trashed by a   
  drunk) and now, but went back to Ranger, they are just the  
  best built boats out there. Finish, fittings, workmanship, it has  
  it all. Re-sale is by far the best on Rangers. They might not be  
    the fastest boat, but they are the best if you're looking for a   
  fishing machine. "

     200 Evinrude seem to get it on plane. It has a 13 1/2" x 25" Renegade.   
  I can't believe that they used this boat in the Redman   
  All-American. The trim has to be set just right and the throttle  
  feathered to get on trim and by just right I mean exactly the   
  same every time.  It's going back to the dealer to have them  
  check the setup, but I want this to be corrected a.s.a.p. as   
  we don't have much season left up here in the north. Any  
  suggestions would be greatly appreciated."
