Ranger inflatable

Postby co2tugman on Tue Jul 10, 2012 9:27 am

If anyone knows of a Ranger inflatable for sale I would
be interested as my current dinghy is too long for the swim step.
We are taking delivery of our new R25 SC this Friday in Seattle.
Goes by the name "Squeezer"

I assume you mean an inflatable that can be used on an R25 vice one MADE By Ranger? :?:

I am not aware that Ranger Tug manufactured an inflatable...
The Livingston's who own Fluid Power and other businesses manufacture a catamaran hulled dinghy, but it is not an inflatable...

Well, you learn something every day... :)

Ranger does indeed make inflatable boats...

But it's not the Ranger Tugs company. Do a google search on Ranger Inflatable boa ts and you'll find some for sale.

Good luck..

The inflatable that was available from Ranger Tug has a nameplate on the side with the logo"Ranger Tug" They now only offer a hard body inflatable made in China for them, and no longer offer the
fully inflatable model.
I find that during salmon fishing season a swim step mounted dinghy is in the way. The website Ranger is not the same
but appears to be a very good product.
So, I'll keep looking for a used Ranger Tug inflatable.

Thanks, Jim

Just to further usurp this thread. I prefer Diver Dan to Ranger Joe. Ranger Joe is pathetic! He is really Jim Rex, a heating equipment salesman from Philadelphia who invented a cereal. Sadly it's true, it's been made by Nabisco since 1939. Ranger "Rex" developed the candy coating of honey & corn syrup that led to Sugar Crisp and put Post on the map:
Image
Ranger Joe Rice Honnies Cereal. Due to lagging sales the name was changed in 1971 to Winnie-The Pooh Great Honey Crunchers which came in two varieties, wheat or rice. Still it was not so great a seller, and it was changed again to Klondike Pete's Crunchy Nuggets, again in wheat or rice. In 1975 it was gone, and that was that for Ranger Joe!

But there's only one Diver Dan, who is quite amazing:

Now, what were we talking about... Ranger Rubber Boats, or something?

I've ordered a 31 Sedan and I'm trying to figure out what sort of dinghy to buy. Ranger offers an optional 290 RIB I discovered in this thread. Does anyone have specs for it? Weight, min and max HP etc? Nothing on the Ranger web site that I could find - sort of odd.

Thanks!

It seems Ranger sells a lot of things and makes a lot of mods that are not listed on their website. I recommend calling the factory and see what they say.

Don't forget Ranger Beer, an IPA made by New Belgium Brewing! Seriously thou the Ranger Tugs does offer a dinghy with a Ranger Tugs name badge, as someone else suggested check with the parts dept. manager Richard @ 253-839-5213, he'll have all your answers.
