Ranger Boats, Randy Hopper President,and Genmar corp. Irwin Jacobbs, Falsified state documents, and Bank records to illegally take possesion of my Boat. At the time of the incident Ranger "Faked" sincerity and pretended to be attempting to correct the issue. CLEARLY STATING IT WAS A MISTAKE AND ERROR, AND IT WOULD BE REPLACED WITH ANEW ONE.

Ranger manufacturing through it's attys, and personel, intentionally stalled and shifted the matter back and forth, to different personel for the purpose of running out the legal statutory timelimit to file a lawsuit. Once the timelimit had expired, Randy Hopper, President of Ranger Boats, personally called and LAUGHED in my Face!

Through my exhaustive investigation of this matter I have discovered litterally dozens of Boat owners who have had Ranger and it's employee's do the same thing. Any Outdoor exhibition will see hundreds of Flyers being passed out clearly stating not to buy a Ranger Boat, I have seen Billboards during Boat shows, internet spam, etc.

Point is, none of these ex-ranger owners would be doing all of this without factual backing, and legal justification. One man I spoke with has been passing flyers for 18 years over almost the same situation.

If RANGER BOATS, RANDY HOPPER-PRESIDENT, GEMAR CORP.-IRWIN JACOBS, HAD ANY GROUNDS TO DISPUTE THIS. THEY WOULD HAVE FILED LEGAL ACTION TO STOP IT.

THE FACT RANGER BOATS HAS NEVER ATTEMPTED TO LEGALLY STOP THESE PROTESTERS IS,// THEY HAVE NO LEGAL GROUNDS TOO. THEY PROTESTERS THEREFORE ARE 100% CORRECT IN THEIR STATEMENTS.

Think about that for a long time before you attempt to purchase a Ranger boat, or any Genmar product. Why would they not stop a slander of their co. if it indeed was slander. Answer: It is a factual event, and actual theft by Ranger boats. And clearly Ranger is afraid to get invoved in a legal position to have to explain thier action in a court of law, or for any public record.

DO NOT PURCHASE A RANGER BASS BOAT, A RANGER BOAT, OR ANY BOAT MANUFACTURED BY A GENMAR COMPANY. THEY ARE THEIVES AND LIARS. FROM THE PRESIDENT ON DOWN!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I witnessed the fraud/conspiracy

AUTHOR: Rich - (U.S.A.)

I worked for Travis Boats, in Lewisville Texas and personally witnessed the planning and execution of a fraudulent scheme involving the man passing out the flyers( don't remember the name). The ranger district rep. Randy Green, (90% positive on the last name) and employees of Ranger boats and Travis boating center, made up a story claiming he struck a fictious persons vechile while passing out the flyers at a Boat Show in Dallas. The Travis Boating Manager had a friend who worked at another dealer, The Shalom Shop, call in the fake report. They made the report naming the vehicle the man passing out the flyers owned (by a DMV records search). They were caught and charges filed with the Lewisville Police, because the man had not passed out the flyers. He had hired a co. to pass out the flyers, and he no longer owned the vehicle. At the start of the police investigation The shalom Shop employee withdrew his claim, stating it never happened. Travis management convinced the police to drop it.

I personally witnessed, and was involved in the discussions with the Ranger reps. and Dealer employees planning to discredit and defraud the man out of his rights. During these discussion the Facts were discussed that that man's boat was illegally taken, and that it was taken intentionally, and more importantly that Ranger's President Randy Hopper, and prior owner Foresst Wood knew it was wrongfully taken and had embarked on a massive coverup to avoid possible lawsuits. One of the biggest concerns was the possible involvement in State and Federal crimes on the falsified papers used to obtain the boat. For all the years I worked at Travis Boats this was the number one priority was to coverup the facts involving Ranger and its Management employee's, and Travis was not even the dealer personally involved.

It was well Known that if you did not side with Ranger manufacturing you would be basically cut-off. Travis managements "screw up" of this got a lot of heat from Ranger Mfg. Only a few months later Travis did lose the rights to sell Ranger products to a dealer down the street (Whittle Boats), They too decided (thru a friend that is employeed there) it was way too invovled both legally and criminally to stay in bussiness with Ranger Boats, they are no longer the Ranger Bass Boat Dealer, it has moved a few doors down.

The thought that Ranger Boats is suppose to be the Number 1 bass boat, why would their own dealers not want to carry them? I personally know it's because Ranger is corrupt and plans to never admit it and cover it up forever. Like the orignal posted complaint says, why else has the flyers and billboards been going on for close to twenty years with out any legal action against those passing them.

Reason: I was employeed and in the middle of it, Randy Hopper of Ranger Boats is scared of the legal repercussions. Ranger started the coverup and fraudulently stalled a customer with promises till the lawsuit deadlines had passed.

I know the facts and I witnessed and was a part of almost every disscussion while I was an employee, and their are factually, dozens this has been done too. Some of the boats are given to pro's, some donated, some resold, some used as Tournament prizes. I know the boat of the one 18 yr flyer passing out man, was a very uniquie special edition, highly coveted. The dealer that took it with the false papers keep it himself. I attest to these facts, as I was involved in the facts.

ANY ATTORNEY REPERSENTING ANY PERSON WHO HAS HAD A THIS PROBLEM WITH RANGER ARE A RANGER DEALER CONTACT ME. I WILL TESTIFY.
