Hi -New Kid Here !

Hi - I luv this site already ! I'm looking into getting a trailerable trawler ( Ranger ) to spend time on Puget Sound for up to 2 weeks at a time, then have a friend of mine with a truck take it to a storage yard when not in use, so that I can afford to keep her. So far, I only have the name picked out.

Look forward to getting to know you guys !

I've been on two, so far, and consider them to be a great trailerable boat. All the comforts of home and a decent turn of speed. You'll love it!

Hi,
Greetings from Perth, Western Australia

Another West Aussie member on here (Peter) that goes by the name of Blunda has just had a Ranger built. Might pay to look him up and have a chat. From what I've seen and the discussions we've had, the vessel looks and sounds to be a nice little unit.

Here is a link to Petes thread : Newbie????

Whats the name you picked out for the tug?

Below Pic is Pete's Ranger just after delivery.

Welcome. A name is as good a place to start as any. Now find that transom the name fits on, and it will be all good. Can't get any simpler than that. Really, good luck in your search. The search can be a fun adventure.
