Part of the fun of owning a boat is getting together with like-minded people, particularly people who like the same kind of boat you do. That truism explains much of the popularity of owners’ rendezvous, and nobody knows this better than the owners of Ranger Tugs and Cutwater Boats, who hold owners’ rendezvous regularly all over the country.
The 2018 Southwest Florida Ranger Tugs/Cutwater Boats Rendezvous was just held at Burnt Store Marina in Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, Florida, which is just north of Fort Myers and in from Boat Grande. It’s the largest marina on Florida’s west coast.
Ranger and Cutwater sent a factory service rep from their base in Seattle to answer any owners’ questions, and the owners themselves compared boats, swapped cruising stories and generally had a great time. There was music, entertainment, the ever-popular dinghy races, and 22 “Tugettes,” women owners of Rangers and Cutwaters, posed for a group shot. Mike and Jess Rizzo on Illusions were the event hosts and coordinators. Take a look at these pictures to share the fun:
