But... the RMAX is getting some pretty strong reviews from owners.

Ok, now you made it harder, should I spend the money on a good boat or a UTV?

I really do appreciate all of the comments and thoughts.

I’ve had boats my whole life.
I’ve had a Reinell, a Four Winns, a Crestliner, a Lund, and a G3.
I’ve always wanted a Ranger so in ‘16 I ordered a Ranger Reata.
Ranger sent me weekly updates on the build and sent pictures of each stage of the build.
Cheap? No.
Worth it, YES!
Buy the boat now while you are young and the SxS when you are older.

Too Late, I am old.

I sold my 23 foot Reinell not too long ago, still have the money in the bank to put toward a fishing boat I still have my 18 foot Glastron runabout and I am trying to decide whether to sell it too and buy something like you did or turn the Glastron into a fishing boat. I am too old and fat to waterski any more.

I would like to get something like a Lund Tyee in the 18 to 20 ft range.

I have two friends that own Tyees, they love them. Not as smooth a ride as fiberglass but excellent fishing platforms.
Not sure if you are used to boating at this elevation or not ( sounds like you are) but DO NOT skimp on engine size.
Do whatever you need to do to max the engine, accessories can be added later.

Yeah, I like the bigger engine idea. My 18 ft Glastron has a 150 Johnson, My 23 ft Reinell had a 454.

I don't want to go smaller than an 18 and don't want to go bigger than a 20 0r 21 ft.

May I suggest getting an outboard when you do purchase.
Fish until ice, I have fished DC on Christmas Eve.
Store boat two months to shoot geese and to catch perch through the ice.
Put boat on water mid feb for UL walleyes.
Don’t even need to winterize!
