Ranger Tug Boats

John Livingston, the President of Ranger Tugs is no stranger to boating. He grew up in a family who boated often in the Pacific Northwest, enjoying water sports, crossing the Straits of Juan De Fuca, fishing in Canadian and Alaskan waters, and even making trips to Florida to fish. With this passion for the water, it was only natural to transition into building boats.
