Selling my 2003 Ranger 2300 Bay Ranger bayboat. Its been called the "Ultimate Bay Boat". 
From the brochure...
"The 2300 Bay Ranger has quickly become known for its detail finish, and overall versatility. At the stern, an integrated engine set-back works with a specially engineered tunnel between the hull pad and outboard for easier operation in the shallows. Combined with a low profile design, the Carolina-style bow flare and extra wide 8' 4 1/2" beam delivers more comfort, less wind resistance, and an extremely dry ride. The large, unobstructed casting decks are ideal for flyfishing and the oversized gunnels deliver a 360° fishing platform. Touting the added peace of mind from upright, level flotation."

This boat runs awesome in the chop and get in very shallow areas. It is a great family boat that can be used for fishing in the bay or the reef. Its great for snorkeling and diving for lobsters. Boat gets detailed and waxed every year. Boat can be seen in Key Largo by appointment only.
