Re: Going to look at a boat

The Ranger 26 is a very good little boat.. if it's in good shape it will be a great starter. However if it has real issues no matter how 'cheap' it is, it may not be any kind of bargain. Check for soft decks, other obvious leaks, engine (present? condition? running?)

Best of luck.
