The way I found the answer was to look through a couple of the National boat for sale sites.  I started with 1988, one year later than my 360V, and kept going until I found a model with a lot of setback.  The fist one I found was the 1994 482vs.  I also did a search to see who won the Classic in 1995.  I am going to guess that some of these were released in late 1994.  Hence the following for sale ad:

Way Back Wednesday Trivia 2017 !!

Was crazy busy yesterday and completely forgot to throw out a trivia question for the week (as well as my Fantasy fishing picks :( ) so here's a good one to keep y'all busy till next week.

  All of the 1979 Bassmaster Classic Ranger boats had the same rigging,can you tell us the name of the company that supplied the Batteries for all these Ranger boats at the time ?
Hint: The company actually dates back to the late 1800's :)
Good luck and thanks for playing.

The Electric Storage Battery Company founded in 1888 by W.W. Gibbs.  It was Gould/GNB company that made the 1st sealed marine battery.  To check out the story just click on the link below.

Tks guys, 

I was about ready to give up :(  :surrender: I spent over an hour searching and searching  ~sweat ~sweat  I finally won up watching the sponsors credits from the 1980 Bassmaster Classic Video.  After I seen the name Gould it wasn't long afterwards I pieced it together ~read :-*

And that is how it's done ;)
I enjoy the research for the questions and sometimes while searching I find ideas in the craziest of places. Like the 79 Classic video coverage. Watched that while thing the other day :)

I watched the 1979 classic Sponsors Credits about (3) times.  The actual video of the event was pretty good but the darn sponsors credits were all blurry >:(

Hope everyone's had a great week so far !
 This Bassmaster Classic Champion and hall of famers normal occupation was as a farmer. When he decided to compete for a chance, he took out a loan and quit farming for a year so he could try to achieve his dream.
  The prize money for a Classic Champion sure helped and it was just recently raised to $15,000. By winning that Classic he cemented his place in bass fishing history and eventually into the Hall of Fame.
Can you tell us who this HOF angler is and what Classic he won ?  Good luck and thanks for playing.
