dont have a picture towing it as I sold my hitch and father got a new truck

but its a 16 foot hells bay flat skiff, with a yami 125 on the back. thing hauls @$$, runs shallower than your shower and looks clean as ill get out. and is lighter than a feather minus the motor. when switching trailers. 10 guys lifted the boat and manually swapped trailers.

consider the eveglades destroyed this april

Well, I mentioned 150 HP Merc Blackmax XR-2... that beast is bolted onto the *** end of a 1984 ProCraft 17.5' fiberglass pro style bass boat.

Yes, it's very fast and a lotta fun. Two people on board with a cooler and tackle, and that Merc running perfect, you get on a plane in about 2 seconds... hauls once you get that thing WFO.

It's pretty amazing how someone figured out how different hulls ride different on the water, like this bass boat only has about a 1' by 2' part of its *** on the water when it's planing.

She needs some work as she's been sitting for two years now. Yeah, it's sad. We just never had the time to go hit some lakes. Maybe this season.

I want to put a little pirate flag on the transom light pole before we go out...

Pics later... she's still in the barn with boxes and other crap stacked on top of her.

For a while there, I was looking at the Searay on the Ranger... "Damn! He tows that thing with the Ranger?"

And read below that he didn't do anything other than move it around his driveway. Darn it, I was hoping to see a little underdog Ranger towing a big *** boat like that one...

I would move it, from one end of the driveway, to the other... 2x a week. that boat, completely maxed out the rear suspension. first time I have ever seen the bump stops as pancakes lol

But as an under dog moment, due to the retardedness of my neighbor, I did pull it through 20ft of mud and up and onto the driveway, after the boards i set out slipped out from under the tires and my neighbors like 'go go your good'

Not a ranger but still worth posting because it is a Ford.
