  "Purchased boat in April 2000. Previous owner took   
  exceptional care of it.  All upholstery & carpeting is new, the  
  trailer was refinished at the same time.  All work was done by  
  Ranger in 1999.  The gelcoat on boat looks as it it were   
  factory fresh! The motor has been completely overhauled as   
  of Oct. 2000.  My decision.  We removed the oil injection  
  system as that was causing serious problems.  I now mix oil  
  with the gas at 50 to 1.  The motor was over bored 30 thous-  
  ands and Boyesen reeds installed.    
       Updated 3/31/02... "All right! I finally got all the problems worked out for this rig!  
  Holeshot is now less than 8 seconds! I have had it up to 58  
  mph (speedo), but have some side to side chinewalking, which  
  I understand is good.  I was told I should be able to do better  
  but so far I have been slightly shy to do so.  I have to learn to  
  drive through it. I had it in for some serious work lately.

   "The Ranger R71 is a great bass boat. It has a smooth dry  
  Updated 1/22.... ride for its size.  It's a perfect fishing boat if you are more  
  into fishing than racing.  
   I have looked at a lot of boats for a lot of years and this  
  one has the most quality in a 17' model. It does cost a little  
  more, but worth it if you are going to keep it for a long time."  
  This R71 is White/Red with Gray carpet. It has a half deck  
  extension which is great. It makes a perfect place for your   
  partners tackle box so you're not tripping over it all day, not to  
  mention the extra deck space.
