  1. We had this exact same problem when we received our new mooring cover (replaced under warranty). Dealer made some modifications, solved the problem.
  2. It doesn't "pop-up"... it's more of a pull-up pylon! Once you pull it up, turn it to lock in place.
  3. From the album 2550 RCL

    New and old Toons.
  4. It is my understanding that the boat we were looking at hasn't been used much this summer... a handful of times at most. The toons haven't been cleaned all summer...so it does look promising!
  5. Thanks Jsur... I'm sure everyone's experience will differ between lakes. I'm impressed you wife is cleaning the boat as you typed this... it would definitely be the other way around with my wife! hah! I appreciate the feedback!
  6. The Dealer compared the dirty toons to dragging an anchor! Jack - Agreed, that would need to be part of the deal before we purchased... the boat would need to hit upper 30's make us happy. Our 2274 GLI w/ 115hp & clean toons hit 26 MPH on the way over to the marina... hah.
  7. Over the weekend we had a chance to take a test ride on a potential "new to us boat". It is a 2011 2550 RCL w/ 250 vmax SHO engine being offered at a great price. The motor only has 53 hours on it, and the boat is in great shape. However, the boat has been sitting in the dealer's slip all summer and has been collecting grime. Top speed of this boat during the test drive was 25 MPH! The Dealer told us that the speed would be greatly decreased, but I couldn't believe how much! We had 3 adults on board and 1 small kid. He claims that cleaning the toons should increase the speed by 15MPH. The Dealer is willing to clean the toons if we decide to purchase (The Dealer is working as a Broker on this deal). Has anyone else experienced this much decrease in speed due to dirty toons? I have to say i was disappointed in the top speed of the boat, but the turning/banking of the boat was very impressive. (This was our first ride on a boat w/ ESP) -Sean
  8. Thank you for the clarification Semper. Definitely a bit confusing. -Sean
  9. So if the boat was purchased in 2011 - does the Warranty info dated 2014 apply? Thanks again, -Sean
  10. Derrick, This is the thread I was referring to: http://club.benningtonmarine.com/index.php?/topic/511-team-bennington/?hl=%2Bstructural+%2Bwarranty#entry3261 -Sean
  11. Thanks Jack! That helps. I saw another thread where TB said the warranty was not transferable... but that PDF clearly states it is!
  12. I have a 2011 GLI that considering selling (PADS!!) Can the 5 year bow to stern warranty (1 year left) transfer to the new Owner? Thanks in advance, Sean
  13. Thanks for the responses guys... Jack, that mirror does looks pretty sweet... I'll be sure to look into that. Thanks again. -Sean
  14. I have one more question for Jack M.... Where did you get your mirror in your profile pic? I can see that being very handy! Does that clip on the top rail of the fence?
  15. Hello, I have a question regarding the Sport Arch... does it fold down at all for storage? If so, how hard is it? I have a boat house, and I don't think i would be able to lift it out of the water unless it folded down. While we are on this topic, what is the difference from the sport arch & hybrid arch? Does the hybrid arch replace the standard Bimini top? or can you pull a skier with the hybrid as well? Thanks for the clarification! -Sean
