  1. I looked at your picture as tightly as possible. The front horn looks longer than the rear. If you look at my picture, you get the same impression. It may have been angled last year.
  2. I took a look at pictures of my future boat and the rear cleats are angled. Think of this as the "before" picture.
  3. Thanks GWLK. Waiting either for sellers bank or DMV to send paperwork. First time I ran into this delay buying used boats over many years. Started projects include a dual battery distribution panel, SimRad GoXSE ready to install, NMEA 2K network, new porta-potti, and a bunch of LED and other projects ready for installation. I was hoping to get a lot done before the weather changes from winter to summer. Forget spring. Great boat you picked out. Enjoy.
  4. Hi Carl and Suzy, Ah, to be on Lake Norman.... My son lived in Charlotte for a while so we rented a house at Sherrils Ford and had our first long term exposure to pontoon boating. What a great place! Gas station is still there. Don't know how they stay in business at $2.89 /G regular? As far as the boat, we still don't have it. Went to contract April 6th and dealer was getting title from original owner..Visited dealer for orientation ride the date I mentioned above. Check in hand, no title to close with. Calling and writing dealer regularly. No answer to emails this week. This is a Bennington dealer too.Phone call this afternoon and visit shortly thereafter. So... Anyday, anyday, ... I have a few electrical projects to write up and photo for the forum but... no boat.
  5. Hi All, I'm closing on my Bennington today at Greenwood Lake. The dealer should deliver it to Lake Hopatcong by next weekend. I know I've seen other Benningtons at Byrums cove last year. The Cove can get crowded and since it takes awhile to know how this boat handles, It may not be easy to weave through the crowd to stop by and say hello. I'm usually on the West side, not far into the cove. Hope to see you this season.
