1079 Ranger 23

There is one for sale at my marina, has some projects to be done so not all that expensive. Wondering what people's thoughts are and what experience anyone has with a Ranger 23. It has a fin keel and a trailer though I am thinking it really is not a "trailerable" boat in that sense. Thanks in advance.

Its a 1979 not a 1079....

I did find some good info out there and they seem to be a good boat as has been said. Wondering if anyone has "trailered" one and what the challenges are for that.

Yes, almost a viking boat but not quite!

Thanks for all your help everyone but apparently it sold last week. A little slow removing it from the listing I guess.....

CB could you forward the listing or email me the seller's email.
I'm locating R23 owners to inform them of our Group/mailing list

Thanks
