Ranger 37

Around my area - Hawaii - there is a Ranger 37 with a cruising setup at a nice price for what I can tell. I am thinking about sailing her for 2-3 years locally, grin my teeth and at the same time, outfit her for the South Pacific cruising.
I have looked around all threads I could find on those kind of boat, and did not find anything too negative, or too positive either, that would discourage me to investigate further. I like the low price that would allow me to equip her properly with safety gear and needed other pieces (windvane etc..).
Any opinions ? If something would have to be changed-verified on those boats for offshore use, what should it be ?

Thanks in advance !

Re: Ranger 37

Always admired those boats. The bubble deck styling is so sleek. They are a fairly small 37' - they were a One Tonner IIRC where most were 34' - 35'. Mull's IOR boats were always longer than most.

They are short on tankage as well as anywhere to put more I believe.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
