Ranger’s new RT 188C, introduced at the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo in Birmingham, is an all-welded 18-8 aluminum that functions equally well for chasing crappies and other panfish or bass. It’s got divided live wells front and rear, three seat bases in the bow so that two anglers can reach those gnarly brush piles, and all aluminum floors and decks for long-term durability. The console is fiberglass. It’s rated for power to 115 horses, and delivers performance to 50 mph. Price is around $20,100 with 90-horse Evinrude, trailer, Minn Kota trolling motor and Lowrance depthfinder; www.rangeraluminum.com.
