LOA 16', BEAM 85"

Ranger is the popular-sized 16’ x 85” x 52” outboard-powered boat which will carry two motors.
(Fiberglass construction.)

Two outboards of 35 h.p. are plenty big enough and one 50 will do if a larger motor is preferred. Do not overpower the boat; this only makes any boat dangerous and does not add to her speed or performance. This boat has a 5’ x 10’ open cockpit with a swept-back and sloping windshield and side wings. She can be used either as an open boat, or as semi-open, with the hardtop, which slides from the windshield (where it is normally carried) to the after end of the cockpit and which can be locked in any position with the thumb screws on the slides. The boat also provides storage space aft of the cockpit for a nylon convertible cockpit cover and aluminum tube supports which quickly convert the whole cockpit into a cabin. The hardtop, of course, has sliding windows which snug up the cabin against the weather for weekend cruising.
