Re: 2018 Bennington - No Hour Meter!

My bennington didn't come with an hour meter.. but then again when I bought my benny it wasn't 40K. Honestly I don't miss it. Plus, if you want, when you have your boat serviced every year they can download the info and tell you how many hours you've run up. btw, congratulations on the new Benny... ...

Hey guys! Need some advice... I'm supposed to pick up my new boat on Thursday or Friday this week. (2018 Bennington 22 SSRX w Yamaha F150).

Re: BATTERY QUESTION

well looks like you guys were right.. bad battery. I let it charge on my shumacher charger overnight.. a total of about 16 hours... I disconnected it from the battery charger this afternoon and immediately used a volt meter on it and it read 11.44 volts ( which is already too low ). I waited 2 minut...

BATTERY QUESTION

Gotta a question for you guys...Last december I bought a battery tender plus ( 12 volt / 1.25 amp charger ). At the time I bought the battery tender plus, my battery ( only one year old Deca marine master ) had been sitting on my boat for 3 to 4 months without being used. Anyway, hooked up the batte...

Re: Yes or No to Buying a Pontoon Trailor

2dogs... hello. since your caretaker has a trailer he can use, do you need to buy one? No. But having one sure would give you alot of flexability if you wanted to visit another lake... or if you needed to take the boat in for service.. If money's not an issue then there's no harm in buying the trail...

Re: Dreaded dirty floor

ToddS.... not positive this will help but see if you can find a product called Simple Green... I know in the past it was "the thing" to use. My toon also has a vinyl floor and I take mine to a do it yourself carwash a couple of times a year and power wash the heck out of it. Can't say my vinyl looks...

Re: BIMINI TOP

If I was in your son's shoes, remove the bimini (unzip) from the frame and look for a local repair shop with a heavy-duty sewing machine. Shoe shop, canvas shop, upholstery. I'm lucky to have a tent and awning guy here in town. Thanks Zoom650... that's what I'm in the process of doing. we took the ...

Re: BIMINI TOP

Bama.. that's a good idea and one that may still be used. I actually drove back to N.W. Louisiana this evening and I just happened to bring his old bimini canvas with me. I'm going to see if I can find a local trim shop to do the repairs as cheaply as possible. The bimini itself is okay, it's just t...
