  2. And BOOM, this happened.....

    Thank you,I will have the additional sealed lifting strakes removed. It will drop the boat price another $700. In my mindit was not making sense to add anything to the outside of port and starboard toons which takes away from the SPS turning performance. The ext aft deck has been added to the Purchase Order. I will finalize everything line by line this week. I've said it before this has to be the best forum. The members here helping others ROCK.

    Do I need lifting strakes sealed Additionally to the SPS pkg. it's difficult to imagine if this is added to the outside toons. The build has taking a few hours to finalize. The dealer is unsure if the strakes being sealed for saltwater or it's added to the outside toons . Very annoying

    Can someone answer a Question. I'm gettinga full refund on my 20 SLXP F90 with strakes and wavetamer.I am very pleased the Senior sales rep stepped up and listened to the issues and degradedperformance. What I was told before the purchase never evolved and after 44 hrs in 6 weeks I'm building a betterBennington. The new build 21 SLXP SPS F150 Simrad GPS G05 EXT AFT DECK,will it need additional strakes and a wavetamer to bow3 tube upgrade beyond the SPS pkg. Am I paying double for certain items below deck.Thanks in Advance
  5. Thank you. I really have gained a large amount of experience in the 40!hrs on this new boat. As a first time boat owner yourexperience and time to help fellow forum members is greatl. I will seriously look at a new boat with your inputs in October when this one is pulled out for the season.
  6. I love this boat. 40 hours in 40 days. I'm thinking of adding a third toon and upgrading to 115. It would appear to be an Xl 115 upgrade.If the Bennington dealer were to due this would the warranty remain valid. Would the Coast Guard classification change allowing the hp 115. I realize a new boat is easier with a trade, but I really enjoy this one. Like I've said I'd like a 4-6 mph improvement with the 115 hp and a center toon from Bennington. As the season is coming to an end I'm thinking this is possible during the off season.
  7. 20 v. 21 SLXP Pricing

    I love the extra bow and stern deck space on my boat. The bow gate I am considering for a cost of $ 600. The biggest issue l have is WOT and getting 22-24 mph. The dealer told me to expect 28-30, after spending a considerable amount of time here and other searches the boat is giving me exactly what should be expected at WOT. The rub is the 4-5 mph missing on a F90 that I was told to expect from the dealer. Dealers don't know all. If you want options the 21 in all models give them to you.

    Bought 20 SLXP F90 Yamaha 25 " tubes 10 paxLAST MONTH, go for the 21. More options with themotor and the extra port bow lounge is nicer for the crew. In the process of a trade or a Xl 115 performance upgrade at the moment. The twin 25" with a F90 tops out at 5700 rpm and 24 mph. That with 2 adults and 2 teenagers
  9. Thanks for the input I'll keep it through the season and look for a 21 slxtritoon with a 150 The Delaware inland bay is very tidal and I'll need an improved chart/gps garmin to go with the upgrade
  10. Thank you. I can't believe that I'm looking to trade after 25 hrs.
  11. New to Forum 20 plus hrs on this Boat Show Dealer purchase. Overall happy with the experience of riding and tubing with the Family, but would like a speed increase without going WOT. The boat has Lifting Strakes, Wave Shield and Hydraulic steering. The Yamaha F90 is smooth and fairly quiet at 4500 rpm. I wonder what should Iexpect before trading in for a 21SLX Tri, or adding an Express Tube Thx
