Still waiting. Well, nothing posted Saturday as of 9:30 p.m. PDT. But if I had to guess, BassFan will have a big story with all the details on Monday.

If there is such a thing, bassfan.com is reporting that Ranger Boats, the golden nugget in the Genmar line-up of freshwater boats, is getting some good news from a Minnesota bankruptcy court. Apparently, though yet confirmed, most of Ranger’s marketing concessions, including Ranger Cup contingency monies, will be honored–a boon for tournament regulars. This comes after earlier getting notice that warranty commitments would be met for customers, according to the website (Dock Talk).

Previously noted on Bassfan, Brunswick had reassured the dealers of its products, that they too, will weather the storm. Many speculated that both Ranger and Triton/Mercury had the best chance to keep business as usual in their individual circumstances, and this will have a positive impact on the national tournament level.

But for owners of other brands under the Genmar corporate umbrella, particularly Champion and Stratos, there is no news, as yet. And that probably isn’t the best news. However, there may be more info forthcoming from BassFan by the end of the day…. Or hopefully before I go fishing in the morning.
