Rinkerâ€™s Boat World demonstrated its â€˜95 line on February 25-26 at Del Lago Marina. The show was open to the public and boaters came from Houston, Dallas and New Orleans to see what the boat dealer is offering this year. Twelve of Rinkerâ€™s boats were shown from the 14â€™ 7â€ Rinker Rocket to the 28â€™ Cruiser. J.C. Pontoons from 20â€™-30â€™ were demoâ€™d as was the Rinker Bullet, the bass boat. The Rinker Bullet is available in a 20â€™ boat and a 21â€™ 10â€ boat. The latter sells for $21,995 with a Bass 150 Suzuki and is the most popular size. New to the line this year is the Rinker 212 Bow-Rider and the Rinker Rocket. Also shown was the Rinker Flotilla, the J.C. 203 Fishing Pontoon, the 22 Tri-Toon with a 150 fuel-injected Suzuki and the 20â€™ Bullet Bass Boat with a 150 fuel-injected Suzuki. Expected at the show were 28-30 clients from the Gulf Coast area. Most were follow-ups from Houstonâ€™s January â€˜95 Boat Show who wanted to see the boats perform. Jerry Rinker of Rinkerâ€™s Boat World said he hoped â€œto show the quality and performance of the Rinker lineâ€ while the company celebrates its 50th year of building boats. The Rinker line of boats is built in Syracuse, Indiana, by Rinker Boat Company, a company started by Jerryâ€™s father, Lossie Rinker, in 1945. Bobby Schields, Jerry Rinkerâ€™s future son-in-law, was on hand to show the boats to clients. He said he wanted â€œto show the versatility of the J.C. Pontoons and the high performance J.C. Tri-Toons powered by up to 250 HP. I want to show everyone the great performance and handling of Rinker boats and that they are the best value on the market.â€ This is apparently an opinion shared by Rinkerâ€™s clients as well. Rick Hague is a pilot for United Airlines and the owner of a Rinker 212 21â€™ Open-bow. He found working with Jerry Rinker in the purchase of his boat to be a very rewarding experience. â€œYou are working with a gentleman who is personally involved with his product.â€ He has been so pleased with Rinkerâ€™s Boat World that he has purchased a total of four boats from Jerry. â€œHe didnâ€™t try to gouge me,â€ Hague went on to say. â€œThe reason I deal with Jerry is heâ€™s as straight as an arrow. If he misquotes a price, heâ€™ll stick with it. Heâ€™s got an awful lot of character. He wants repeat business – and heâ€™ll get it, too.â€ One Rinker boat youâ€™re sure to see on the lake was purchased by Constable Don Chumleyâ€™s Office for its Lake Patrol on Feb. 17. Sgt. Greg Gibson operates a crane or davit from the vessel for lifting injured persons, boat parts or underwater debris from the water.
