    Maybe you should call that surveyor who bad mouthed Rinker and take him with you to pick up the boat!

    Way to go Randy. I honestly believe I will never look at another brand. My Rinker has served me well. It's a well built boat.

    I wish they made a boat that you can fish on and weekend. Like a Tiara. They would capture more of the market that way.

    Yes, Searay has the Amberjack but very few in Diesel!

    Amberjack is a great fishing/weekend boat. All Rinker has to do is have a fold up stern bench. It's the only thing that really gets in the way when I fish on my boat. RY you should check my setup. Good for up to 7 rods in the water. 2 on riggers, 3 dipseys, 2 on boards with torpedo weights. My smartcraft gauge has troll control to maintain a good trolling speed. Have a nice fishfinder and a down temp probe as well. Nice thing is I can take everything off and stow away and you wouldn't ever guess it is fishing boat. Took me 2 years to get it to this level. I am happy now. :)

    That is what we liked about the older Sea rays. You could remove the rear bench seat so you have more room to fish. I put rod holders on the bumper storage rail and one by each engine vent intake. I'm fairly happy but would like to see a pic of your rod holders!

    RY,

    Here are some pics, notice scotty rod holders can be removed, and only the small base is left. Hardly noticeable. The rigger has a quick release and all comes off, only leaving a thin aluminum base plate behind. When all is stowed, the cruiser asthetics arent tarnished.:

    Yes, that was my "surveyor" who bad mouthed the Rinker brand...not to happy. This might have been a good boat but he would not complete the survey but happy to take my 400 bucks for his trouble. Live and learn.  I also had an experience with Randy- I was just starting my search for a boat and was looking at Rinker. I was looking at a particular year and not being familiar with what was standard and what was optional, I sent an email to Rinker asking if they could provide me a list of standard equipment for a 2004.  Not only did I get the info, it was from Randy! He knew I was looking for a used boat but had the forsight to realize I might one day be a buyer on a new one and helped me out.  Little does he know I won't live long enough to afford a new one but here I am talking up praise for the brand, perhaps he has even more forsight than I give him credit for!

    I had trouble with the dealer and them not living up to taking care of warranty items on my 2013 246BR which I bought new from them.  But in contacting Randy, he worked with my marina and shipped the parts to them and then sent me a check for the labor.  Although the Rinker dealer I dealt with seemed only concerned about making sure I was happy before he got all his money for the boat, then after that it was as if I was a bother to ask any questions, and most of the time he would not even return my calls.  Reminds me of dealing with the contractor and subs when building a house ,always make sure you get everything done before paying in full when building a house or buying a boat.

    I purchased a 2013 360ec in August of 2012, and i must say, they really know how to take care of their customers.

    Randy is an amazing person to deal with and always there for you. I have been taken care of extremely well and very happy to own a Rinker boat.

    They stand behind their product a 1000 percent. I have absolutely no negative comments about Rinker whatsoever.

    ALways there when you need them.

    And I love boat. Best in its class. My opinion.
