Re: Ranger 37 - should I??

A couple of details in this thread make me think John and respondents are talking about two different boats. The Gary Mull Ranger 37 was first built in 1973. It seems strange that the boat John's looking at was built in 1982 - well past when it would have been a hot IOR prospect. Ranger 37's were built by Ranger, later taken over by Bangor Punta. the HIN number AUTSA008798AK3 does not look it derives from either of those names. The HIN number looks more like an Australian builder, and the broker's describing the boat as a S&S design starts to make some sense if the boat is not a Gary Mull Ranger 37. A plan drawing or some photos might clarify this, and lead to more apt advice.
