Hoping that many Ranger owners take advantage of this forum. I love the Ranger...what a great boat!

I agree. I have the email addresses of many Ranger owners and will inform them shortly of this site. It is a shame that the maillists stopped, but this might work.

What happened to the Ranger list, I have not seen anything for awhile.

Hi, Pete,

Sailnet discontinued the lists months ago. They told me they were updating the software, but that proved to be untrue. I suspect they couldn't monetize the lists and they simply didn't want to pay for them anymore. There had to be a cost involved.

And that would be fabulous, my dear Chinese spammer, if any of us sailed in seas of boiling petroleum.

Hopefully there are some additional R33 ownership things that folks want to share.

I've moved aboard my R33 (Hull 255, 1976) in Seattle with my girlfriend. I've replumbed the ancient Magic Chef propane oven/3-burner stove and have been cooking up a storm here in the gentle winter we're having.

The R33's narrow beam has been crucial for me here at this marina, where the slips are nominally 12 feet wide but in actuality many of my neighbors are house barges so most slips have barely over 11 feet. I'm moored next to a Cal 34 and we both cheer when we make brilliant maneuvers to depart and arrive in these slips.

With Lake Washington at a wintertime low level, I might be able to sneak the R33 through the Montlake Bridge (nominal clearance 46 feet) but I'm nervous about the actual height. Anyone rig a laser level to their masthead for this sort of thing ?
