Wichever has the best dealer who will take care of you before and after the sale! That makes all the difference. Both are great boats.

Default accessories?

Do they have identical motors and graphs? Does one dealer have better prices on the accessories? I used to own a Lund and now I own a Ranger, both are nice boats. For my next boat I am still undecided if it will be a Lund or a Ranger, but it will be 1 of the 2.

Thanks for getting the conversation going.

No gravel travel.

Motors; Mercury, Ranger 175 optimax, Lund 175 Verrado

I will be putting my own electronics and bow mount on.

Default storage location

If you are parking your boat in a garage make sure you have enough room for it. I looked at a fiberglass Lund but it sat higher on the trailer and wouldn't fit under my garage door. The thought did cross my mind about raising my garage but then I found a Ranger that I like and went that route.

How much casting vs. trolling do you do? I am 99% casting, and believe that glass doesn't blow around in wind and current nearly as much as tin. And occasionally fishing bigger waters that can blow up with storms from time to time, wanted something that rode more comfortably as well.

As others have said, both great boats.

3 shoulders and 1 wrist surgeries have cut my casting down to 1/3 of my fishing time. The rest is split between jigging and trolling.
