Ranger 364V Rigging and Going WORLDWIDE: Boats and Pros is Back!

How would you describe James “JMFW WORLDWIDE” Watson? Depending on how and when you first got to know him, “Sergeant”, “Mogul”, and “Character” are certainly words that might come to mind, but there's quite a bit to his story. From how he goes about a Ranger 364V rigging project to what made “JMFW WORLDWIDE” who he is, Luke Dunkin and James go full throttle — it’s all packed into the return of Boats and Pros! 

Super Deep Livewells, Lightweight Power Poles, and Incendiary Devices (OH MY)

Without giving too much away, this episode of Boats and Pros starts out a little different, and Watson makes that clear when he elaborates on some, let's say "unique", Ranger 364V rigging (mentioned above). We’re sure you’ll enjoy it all, so we have the full video embedded below.
