  1. It's all a matter of personal taste and style. My boat is almost entirely black and white. Love that look and it fits my personality and style (if I have any:)). As for the heat, most all will cook you if it sits in the sun for 5 hours straight. I've had black biminis on all of my boats, and it is not an issue at all. I love the difference in boats I see on the lake. It's what makes it interesting to check them out. What a boring place it would be if all pontoons were white with a beige interior...
  2. I just ordered the same roll direct from Amazon. I'm keen to see if it will eliminate vibration on helm station door too.
  3. Just tried searching for this thread, but came up with nothing. A month or so ago I recall a thread where someone was installing some trim around the edge of their storage areas to cover some of the rough edges that come from the factory. Does anyone recall where this was located? Very interested in doing that to mine and especially around the helm storage door as it seems to rattle a bit at idle speed. Thanks, JS
  4. Does the sub face forward?
  5. Lake Gaston...just sent you a PM too I took delivery last Friday and love the sound, however, I have the rattling too. I plan to go in and adjust the bass and need to apply some trim material around the helm door opening. I think there is a thread on here about putting the material around the edge to help create a better seal and eliminate the vibration. My sub sounds great but it is not fasted to the floor. It moves freely under the helm, which is a problem. Called my dealer today and he was going to call Bennington to get the proper installation procedure. Also, I'm still looking for the amp:). It was their first Bennington with the Roswell stereo upgrade so hopefully we will get answers soon. For those of you with the Roswell upgrade, I would truly appreciate pics of how/where your sub is mounted and where your AMP is installed. Thanks in advance.
  6. Got the call on Monday that my Benny that was supposed to be delayed until late June had shipped and just had arrived at the dealership. It was missing one piece of furniture (assuming the portable chair) that was being shipped and scheduled to arrive later this week. We have the delivery scheduled for Friday. Got the hydro hoist lift being installed Thursday, just in time. The plan is coming together. This is my 3rd new boat, but first pontoon. I'm really excited to get her life launched on Smith Lake. More pics to come but here is one the dealer sent me as they start to get her rigged for her life in Alabama.
  7. I have a Mastercraft too for sports, but really want to get hold of the Benny!!
  8. Just spoke to the sales manager at my dealership. The dreaded furniture delay has hit home. Ordered on 3/31/17 and now it looks like mid June for arrival and maybe a week later for delivery. I'm cool with it as I knew it was coming, but it is what it is. I'll still have it for most of the summer.
  9. Well done Amigo. All of us current and future Bennington owners thank you for taking the time to write, produce, shoot, and edit that great instructional video!
  10. I'm not sure how to start this, but wanted to share it with a group who would possibly support this great dealership, his family and friends in such a sorrowful moment. I was on Facebook the other day and a story hit my newsfeed that the owner of the dealership where I ordered my Bennington had passed away unexpectedly on 5/17/2017! I was in total shock as I read the brief story. His name was Jerry Woods and we met through a referral from one of the Bennington representatives. We talked countless times on the phone and I had the honor and privilege of working with him to complete my order on March 31, 2017. He instantly put me at ease and we struck up a very good relationship in our conversations and meetings. He was the type of gentleman you feel completely at ease with and instantly can tell he was a man who valued honestly and friendship, while still running a very successful marina and boat dealership. He was very patient with me and helped me land on the right boat for our family. More importantly, after reading all of the comments on his legacy page, it is clear he treated all of his friends and customers with this same respect and honesty. I guess I am asking for y'alls thoughts and prayers for his wife Diana, and the entire Woods family during this tough time. He has a sign above the dealership entrance that says "enter as strangers, leave as friends" - it certainly was true in my (and many, many others) case. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/jerry-woods-obituary?pid=1000000185407356&view=guestbook&page=2
  11. That is one fine looking boat amigo!!!
  12. Long time CC permit holder, but have never carried on my boat. As someone said above, firearms + alcohol = huge problem. I
  13. As others have said, call them first thing on Monday. Explain that you want a Bennington, just not this model after you have had time to consider it. Most should be willing to work with you, as this is not an uncommon experience after a boat show. Some states have laws where you can cancel the contract after a minimum number of days (especially if it purchased at an off-site sale), but it may not be applicable in your state or your situation. Get the boat you want. Life is short.
  14. Well done. That interior is exactly like mine, so it looks great:) Thanks for posting. Is that Dale Hollow? Only about 80 miles from our house.
  15. no pics?
