Well after pricing out a couple brands of new boats decided to fix up the ranger new.powerhead live well timers water pressure Guage. Decided to do the carpet getting a little punky at 25 years old.

Looks good! I have to redo the front deck on my boat. One side is starting to rot a little bit. I'm not looking forward to it. I think I'm going to do vinyl.

Nope just carpet don't wanna get to spoiled

 

Wanna be able to close my eyes and think I'm in a 521C. lol

 

I want to do my carpet be realistically, it's still early. I can go another couple years for sure before I replace. I'm just too picky about my boat. Plus, it's my seats I really need to do. I hoping to find some Ranger buckets online and do the switch. If not, it'll be a reupholstering job.

Very nice job Ernie.....

 

I rehabed a 1989 Ranger because of the way it rode. I ran the new ones and they don't behave the same. I keep the original motor and found it had already been converted to a GTX 150 which in it's day was a hot lick of a motor. All of the plumbing was redone on the live wells as well as electrical upgrades. I ended up with vinyl on the center part to land fish and keep carpet on the casting decks. The big improvement was converting it to hydraulic steering man what a difference.
