Re: Help...Triton Owners past/current-Ranger too....

Thanks Justin,

I will take a look, dont know if $20k is in my price range but I will look. Size of the boat is not a huge thing as the water her in CT/NY is kinda small, nothing like Clear Lake or the Delta, the biggest lake in CT is about the size of Folsom, so I'm told.

I will check them out.
