New Ranger 29' Owner
We bought a 1974 Ranger 29' last month and I was hoping to find some info. about the boat and other sailors experiences owning/sailing the Ranger. We are new sailboat owners and appreciate any recommendation/discussions regarding the Ranger boats. We are currently looking to put a furler and lazy jacks on as I have 3 small children and this would enable us to sail more easily in various wind conditions. Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a book about tuning the rigging?
Congratulations on your new boat. Our son and daughter-in-law own a Ranger 29, and are happily racing and cruising her, often with their 10 month old daughter.
The add-ons you speak of are common, and can help make boat handling easier and more convenient.
Tuning the rig is something that is easy to find info on.. a quick google gave me this list:
sailboat rig tuning - Google Search=
....just for starters. Many magazine articles will be available, search this forum for discussions on the subject too!
Best of luck with your new ride! and Welcome to Sailnet.
Congrats on the Ranger. I bought a 1974 26' over the summer and was able to singlehand it before it was hauled this fall. Some additions I made:
Some other improvements in the works:
