anyone looking for a Ranger 26 ... in Michigan?

My new running rigging arrived for my Ranger 23 ... so I'll be busy this weekend ...

I was perusing ... and came up with this post ... thought that I might share it here for anyone in search of a Ranger 26 ... in Michigan

(note - no affiliation with the owner in any way ... just thought it might help someone ...)

Ranger 26

good luck and smooth sailing

If this is the boat: RANGER 26 (MULL) sailboat on sailboatdata.com
then $1 is a very good price if the engine works and if it is in good condition then great!
I like this boat as there is one at our club.
There is also a Ranger 23' that we race against that also seems to sail very well.

Hey, where in MI is this boat?

Oops, I see it now, Muskegon.

Surely someone nearby has gone and scooped up this thing for $1.00!!!! I'm tempted too and I live in Florida.

Listed on Sailing Texas too for $25 Seems to be the same boat. Because of the different prices I wonder if this is for real. My first thought was a scorned woman geting revenge.

I got my Ranger 23 in a very similar way ... outboard is questionable ... new running rigging cost me less than $500 ... standing rigging is next ...
she needed to be cleaned ... but is sweet ... and more than I can handle as I learn ...
