Default Ranger not shipping boats?

I ordered a new 619 FS in January and my boat has been in "stage 8" for the past 3 weeks. Dealer says that parts are on order and that's it. Ranger is not telling them anything further. I fail to understand how a boat can be sitting for 3 weeks in the same place. Mostly though, I can't swallow the fact that Ranger is not reaching out to their network of dealers to explain the situation so that we, the consumers can know when our boats will be arriving. This is not meant to be a Ranger bashing thread but, can you guys please chime in. Is anyone waiting for their Ranger FS series boats?

my Triton sat there waiting for a motor for a while. Because the 206 allure was a new design I cut them some slack. I personally think they have to much going on down there and those southern folk don't move fast to begin with. I say move that plant to Wisconsin and see how fast those boat's move on the line My 2 cent's and good luck

Call Ranger. From what i have seen on other forums people even have pictures taken of their boats and ranger will email them to you as it moves along.

I was told that Ranger was waiting on some keypads and interior trim pieces from their suppliers on the new FS models.

It's pretty frustrating but, if that's the case I do understand. I still think that Ranger should reach out and let people know what's going on and if possible, give an ETA on shipping. How does one get pictures of their boats?

Decided to make the jump to new Ranger this year. Ordered the boat in December and still waiting for the boat to ship. The excitement of a new boat has turned to frustration at this point. What makes it worse is I sold my old boat 6 weeks ago, so I am currently SOL.

Ordered a 621 Feb 18th and so far the only feedback I have received was the complete date is pushed back to June 7th.

Is this problem with the Fisherman series only? Who has taken delivery of any Ranger recently? To those of you who are waiting as I am, what has your dealer told you? I would be happy simply being told what the delay is all about and when to expect delivery. I called Ranger 4 times and each time I was transferred to a machine to which I left my contact info. It would be nice to have someone return my call. This is my second Ranger and it is frustrating!

Modog, where did your information about Ranger waiting for supplies come from? Perhaps your source might know a bit more about this. If there are any Ranger Pro's or representatives reading this, please inform people about this situation. Good communication is crucial to any business.

Thanks
