MullRanger26 Hi all. I saw the posts about ranger 26 owners manual and would love to get my hands on a copy of the PDF if possible. Mine is also 1975. Thanks for your help!

Fritz7usa Do you still have the Ranger 26 owners manual in PDF? I would really appreciate a copy. I just got a 1975 Ranger this month. Thanks!

Do you still have the manual? Can you email it to me, or maybe post it here or somewhere easy to get to? Thanks!

Other enhancements

I recently got a Simrad TP-10 Autotiller, which I installed. It steers the boat quite well. Since I singlehand a lot, it's a great addition. I got a Perko polarized plug and mounted the socket on the side of the starboard lazarette, so the TP-10 plugs in right there. The Autotiller cost me just over $300 at Defender. I'll try to get some pictures. Has anyone else tried one of these?

Also, has anyone rigged jiffy reefing on an R-26? I've been studying the boom on mine, but haven't figured out exactly how to do it.

Ranger 26 Headroom

I think it's 5'4" or thereabouts. I'm 6' and I hit my head all the time!

Can anyone tell me the headroom dimension of a ranger 26?

Ranger 23 Web Site

Anyone with a Ranger 23 should go to:

R-23 Archives Index

There is a wonderful newsletter (1995-2002) archived there. Mr. Gentry is a true expert on racing the R-23 and produced an excellent newsletter.

Cisco562 George, 1st time on SailNet so I may not be following protocal. I own a Ranger 23 and am in the middle of doing a major electrical refit with an electrician...costing me an arm and a leg. Can you email me the owners manuel you may have for the Ranger 26? I cant believe there to be too much of a difference in the electrical schemtic between the 23 & the 26. At leat it will give us an idea. ( Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Cisco
