This is a Ranger 28 - Kent Washington Ranger, not the Mull kind. It is actually the hull of the Choate CF27 (the old blue Manana) with a different deck plunked on top. Not a bad boat. Not sure if the foils stayed the same, I have seen Schumacher credited with this design in a few places...

No, the transom is much different. This looks like a late 70's early 80's IOR style reverse transom. Transom reminds me most of a CF27, but it's not. Cabin and layout are different and looks like a MH rig.

Well that explains it. I was wondering if it was the OTHER Ranger company, but couldn't find any reference to it in a quick Google search.

Edit: found it on Sailboatdata.com. Credited as Kaufmann/Schumacher. Looks to weigh about 600 lbs more than the CF 27 (depending on how much you want to rely on published displacements) and slightly smaller fractional rig. As a result, published D/L ratio higher than the CF 27 and SA/D lower (and in this case, SA/D is actually relevant). So likely a bit slower than the CF27. PHRF maybe in the 165-175 range?

I thought they had the same rig as the CF27, but you never know. The interior looks heavier, all liner pans and stuff. That one in the ad has had the galley removed by chainsaw I think.

Looks to be the same rig, but main is a touch smaller in both dimensions. Also, the Ranger 8.5 has a Yanmar IB, which accounts for some of the weight gain, plus more drag than the OB setup on the C27

Much like boats such as the San Juan 34, I think this was part of a 'last gasp' of the PNW boat building industry - no money left for new tooling, so a few desperate attempts were made at relaunching models from elsewhere while the companies were treading water.

Nifty looking O29 for sale in SoCal that it looks like the price has been just dropped significantly on (I think they were asking high $20k range - now $15k). Wondering how the outboard is attached - a removable flip up OB bracket?

Interestingly (for me anyways), one of the photos in the gallery has the Davo 30 (MORC-Maxi) now in Seattle in it.

The CF27 knock-off was known as a Ranger 8.5. Same foils, rig dimensions varied somewhat. Cleaner interior with the frp liner. And of course the diesel...

The weight of the inboard would be better positioned. The original Slippery When Wet had a small, gas powered, inboard that was barely able to push it along. Much smoother boat in sea way compared to the outboard out back.

Beneteau One ton - $30k in California. I think the toilet jammed in the front 2 feet of the boat is funny. Rodeo toilet!

It would certainly be a daunting task to stay planted on that thing out at Swiftsure Bank.

Question about the berth cushions cuz I've seen them on other French boats, are they 1 piece or a bunch of cushion tubes stacked next to each other. How practical/comfortable are they?
