91 ranger 391v 2000yahama 200 need good and bad

Recommended Posts

greetings from louisiana

i just bought a

1991 ranger comanche 391V with a 2000 yahama 200 v-max ox66. 14X26 4 blade prop type unkown.

it has a  12 inch Manuel jack plate not sure of the brand.

motor guide 67# 12/24 volt trolling motor  looks almost new not sure of age.

it has hydraulic steering and a screw in drain plug i think these are newer items. not sure

trailer is in very good shape new tires, bunks look all most new and only a few specks of rust on the trailer.

bought it from a man who's father bought it new and died so the son knew very little about it. he said his father had it refurbished about 8 or 10 years ago. he was not sure just what was done but he said it had new carpet.

paid $6200 for it

just want to know every thing  good and bad about the boat and motor or up grades that would  improve it.

things like

rough water ride

speed and handling.

motor problems

Those 300 series Rangers weren't great in rough water.

speed and handling.

Hope speed wasn't on the top of your list. Handling OK.

motor problems

The OX66's were good motors.

The boat will be a good, flat fishing platform.

I have a 1989 ranger390v I love this boat

I'm not going to go into a ticking match with people and there boats

Its all on how you drive your boat, Mine handles great in rough water a lot better then a champion or Nitro

But I think it is on how you learn to take rough water

and as far as speed goes I have a black max merc 200 2 people on board 71 mph on the skids and it is real stable

I have been in a ton of boats and this old ranger feels safer then most that I have been in

shoot some pic on here so I can see her

storage is my only *****.

71 mph is a very respectable speed. my brothers nitro 911 w/225 merc is at very best a 70 mph gps boat.
