I am selling my 16 Foot 1977 Ranger with the trailer & an awesome 50 HP Honda 4-Stroke Engine. I am the 2nd owner of this boat and the motor was purchased around 2001. The gentleman who had this boat before me only used it for a few seasons and then got sick so he didn't take it out as it was too much for him to do. When I got it from him I cleaned it up re-wired all the electrical installed new lights and really put a lot of time and money into it. I used it for only 1 Season and I only put about 6-8 Hours on the motor and it was awesome! It is fast, quite, and is really a huge motor for the 16 Foot Aluminum Boat it is currently on. I had to change the floor by the motor because the gentleman's wife did change the cover after it ripped in the rear so that part of the floor got really messed up so I removed it and installed marine plywood that I stained to help protect it and ensure that it lasts a long time that area I used to put the gas tanks or a cooler in that area. The Skeg was broken by the previous owner and I have it but I ran the boat without it and it was totally fine. Also because it was about 8 years between the owner using the boat and me purchasing it, I had a Honda Motor Specialist totally go over the motor to get it back to 100% & at that time it was decided to NOT re-Build the Carburetors and just purchase brand new ones, they were installed in summer of 2015. I used the boat up to October of 2015 and then had it winterized in November of 2015. Due to some family issues last summer I did not put the boat back in the water in 2016 so that is why I am looking for a boat that I can dock at a marina so I can just got out without having to always lunch the boat. I also have the old carburetors and I will include them with the sale of this boat. This boat steers great and can really move on the water and has no problem getting to your fishing spot quickly! The boat really does run great and it was a blast the 1 Season I used it but now it is time for me to get a bigger boat so I can enjoy a larger one with more friends and family on the lake. I will include the gas tanks and other items that need to be with the boat but I will be keeping the life jackets and other items that i will need for my next boat but I will include a lot of extra items for the buyer when you purchase the boat, motor and trailer. As for the Trailer: I put new wheels and other new parts on it in order to make it better and safer when traveling. The only thing is that is does not have lights because I purchased a wireless set so I can use them when trailer other items. So if you purchase this you will need your own set or I can follow you to re-claim my wireless trailer lights. Please look at the photos and let me know if you have any questions. I will also be willing to sell it to the buyer who gives me their best offer so I can start my shopping for the 22-24 Foot Boat that is next on my radar. This is really a great boat to cruise around and do some fishing on really any size lake.I have clean titles to both the boat and the trailer just in case you were wondering about registering either of these, and they are both currently registered now so there is no lapse with DMV !Looking to sell the boat to the buyer with the "Best Offer!"
