    Used ranger

    look at the boat blue book resale values... looks like the motor has been replaced with a newer one see if the owner has or can get the warranty extended for three more years if you decide to get it. But then again you may never need it but its kinda like a spare tire its there if you need it. Good Luck with your decision.

    Used ranger

    I believe the Z20's were only rated for a 225 so might want to look at that aspect if you plan on fishing tournaments and maybe insurance . (check the motor hours it may tell you how much or how little it was used. Does it have a jack plate? The Z20's will perform much, much, much better with a 10 inch jack plate and I'm pretty sure Ranger made them standard but not sure of the year ...but it was after I bought mine. lol Look at the lids to all of the compartments some were easy to bow and feel mushy when you stand on them. Not bashing just stating what I would look for other than the obvious hull and trailer shape as stated above.

    Damiki Technique

    FWIW....... Loss of color underwater at depth What color disappears first underwater? Water absorbs different wavelengths of light to different degrees. The longest wavelengths, with the lowest energy, are absorbed first. Red is the first to be absorbed, followed by orange & yellow. The colors disappear underwater in the same order as they appear in the color spectrum. Even water at 5ft depth will have a noticeable loss of red. For this reason, strobes are usually used to add color back to subjects. At what depth underwater does color disappear? Red - 15ft orange - 25ft Yellow - 35-45ft Green - 70-75ft Don't forget to add in the horizontal distance. If you are 10ft underwater, and you are viewing an object 10ft away, the light has actually travelled 20ft, and all of the reds will be filtered out. Likewise, if you light up an object with your strobes 5ft away, the light has to travel 5ft to the object, and 5ft back to your lens, for a total of 10ft, with a significant loss of reds. This is why you always need to get close to your subject. Read more about getting better color in your underwater photos.

    I thought red was the first color to disappear ( turns grey if I remember correctly) after about 5 foot of depth.

    I use a snap but a split ring should be ok.

    What is considered old for "the old ones"?
  9. FUEL FOR THOUGHT: Last summer the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asked the public how much ethanol it wanted to be added to the nation’s gasoline supply. Recreational boaters as well as many other owners of gasoline engines and vehicles spoke up against increasing ethanol volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Regardless, earlier this month the EPA set the 2018 RFS at a 0.05 percent increase over the 2017 standard. Signed into law in 2005, the RFS requires an increasing amount of biofuels, such as corn ethanol, to be blended into the gasoline supply. When it was written, RFS assumed that America’s use of gasoline would continue to grow. Since 2005, however, gasoline usage has not increased as forecasted, which today forces more ethanol into each gallon of gas. To keep up with the RFS mandate, in 2010 EPA granted a waiver to allow E15 (15 percent ethanol) into the marketplace. However, only fuels containing up to 10 percent ethanol (E10) are safe for use in recreational boats and small engines. As higher blends enter the gas supply, the chance of misfueling increases. At the same time, E10 decreases fuel efficiency, increases fuel costs for consumers, and has questionable environmental benefits. Go to www.BoatUS.com/gov/rfs for more information on the Renewable Fuel Standard.

    Phoenix sighting

    LOL... I thought the same thing and asked when I was out there. Was told several lakes off of the Colorado river that runs nearby Martinez Lake is one I remember they often had a wet T shirts contest.

    Off shore

    First......Find a different Wally World....most are open 24 hours and carry the basic stuff. Second....That deep water has me baffled too.

    All boats are to expensive but it is what the market can stand I guess. I don't believe that anyone sets out to make a bad boat and they are plenty of good options out there. However with that said, I fished as a co angler in the different FLW events for a couple of years and rode in probably all of the different brands. Had previously owned Cajuns and Sprints but when I purchased a new boat it was a Ranger. Why? Because of the quality of ride and craftsmanship. Not because it was the fastest cause they are not.
  13. I have saw some with Colorado blades on the Tackle Warehouse site before. I'm sure they still have them.
  14. We have mountain type lakes Norris, Cherokee (Lower end upper end is riverine), Douglas and Tennessee river lakes Ft. Loudoun, Watts Bar, Melton Hill and Chickamuga. Mountain lakes are normally clear and deep. Tellico and Loudoun are connected by a canal Loudoun normally stained Tellico usually clear. Tennessee river lakes not so much.You can fish them any way you desire but normally shallow on the river lakes works most of the time. Clear lakes just the opposite except for spring time. Just my observations. Where you coming from?

    Rod Socks

    Cut those flaps off and sear the end and put heat shrink tubing on them. Shouldn't have to but it will work.
