 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

   Ranger 391 from Jeff Hahn  9/22/2008 9:50:48 PM
Mike: My first Ranger was a 1991 390. I think you will be very pleased with the boat. They did not have hydraulic steering then, so that must have been added more recently. Top speed with the 200 motor should be around 65 mph. The rough water ride is not as good as today's rigs, but it was the best ride Ranger had back then. The one thing I would be a little concerned about is the 12 inch jackplate. Ranger does not recommend any jackplate with more than 6 inches of set-back. Anything more than that voids the transom warranty. While I doubt that is a problem now, I thought you should know that is more set-back than Ranger recommends.

As you know I have the 392..I'll send more pic later. Anyway, i spoke to Ranger and as Jeff has mentioned for that time it would void the warranty..BUT What they did say is that a 10' plate is what worked best for that rig. They aslo mentioned that you can hang a truck from that transom without any worries.

It makes you wonder why they wouldn't warranty anythign over 6" but they recommend a 10" plate of best performance? Either way your going to love it!!

   Great boat... from Toonafish  10/1/2008 8:28:41 AM
You will love the way the 391 fishes. Just as solid as any boat out there. Rides good and will handle bigger water with no problems.

Enjoy it.
