Watson’s Marine – Tempered by Fire

At Ranger we’re constantly reminded how lucky we are to have such a strong team of associates, anglers and dealers.
As an example, the team from Watson's Marine sent us the photos below just this week. It’s the type of story you don’t see nearly often enough on the evening news but proves once again how adversity often reveals a person’s true character. 

For those not familiar, the staff at Watson’s was gearing up for another busy sales season this past winter when struck. With a full inventory of product, just ahead of their annual Open House event, a fire broke out and consumed the dealership. The facility endured over $1 million in damages and was declared a complete loss. 

Fast forward a few months and the Watson’s team is back and better than ever! Thanks to their determination and hard work, the first few boats went into their new showroom just days ago. It’s an impressive reminder of what’s possible with the right group of people all pulling in the same direction.

Finally, it’s also a reinforcement of how lucky we are, as a company, to have so many good people in the Ranger Family! Congratulations to the staff at Watson’s and best of luck in the year ahead!
