  1. Just Curious was the 25FT roll enough to finish everything you needed? it looks very clean definitely something I'll be adding
  2. I would check with a local boat cover/upholstery shop and have them make to your liking , They probably will me able to match your same color cover besides that the fabric is probably going to hold up much better
  3. Well after waiting over a month and still not receiving any confirmation from the dealer that Bennington had confirmed the order. I made the decision to cancel the order with my local dealer, it was a difficult decision . However in the end this has worked out for the better . I eventually started some talks with another dealer and had them price out the build, I literally feel out of the chair when they came back with the price, beating my local dealer by huge amount after expenses traveling and all the misc. by well over 15K . and almost 28% off of MSRP. I reexamined the build and added the Heavy top stitch and the VesselView 702 . I gave the go ahead and received a confirmation within 72 hours . its been two weeks and the dealer has kept me very well informed. I'm hoping to take possession around the beginning of August with fingers crossed. The Best part is it will be built as a 2018!!! Now the suspenseful wait!!
  4. So I got more troubling news, its been over a month since I put my deposit down and still haven't received a build confirmation. I thought I had negotiated a great price on the "R" But since I went ahead and changed to the 350 and added the vesselview702 the dealer is charging me full retail difference on the upgrades. I'm really frustrated with my dealer and considering changing dealers and starting the whole process over . also when I told the dealer I wasn't registering the boat in Cali. they told me I would have to provide a utility bill in my name proving I have a residence in another state. I have discussed this with many people and no one has ever heard of this . its definitely a new one on me . really not happy with the dealer . it started offreal good and now my gut is telling me to run .
  5. Pittsburgh, it's a great idea , one I've actually asked about with them to respounding back with laughs and snickers ! Its okay I've been working them pretty hard on the price .
  6. Well, that is the big question , I put my deposit with the dealership almost a month ago and still haven't received a confirmation yet . Yes, it is a little frustrating but thats what I get for waiting until boating season started , whats frustrating is I already sold the other boat , and The wood boat is having the bottom Replaced
  7. just became aware they are offering the 350 on the R23 and made the change
  8. I upgraded to the the 350 , was browsing through the forum today I hadn't received my confirmation yet ,But, I immediately called the dealer ,and he wasn't even aware of it yet , was able to get the change made Im getting a 350
  9. The dealership you are dealing with in Havasu also has 4 other locations , I just ordered My "R" from the Ontario California Location and dealt with Jeff Tarin , super nice guy and he matched another Bennington Dealers price, he is very familiar with the Havasu area and could offer some insight into what you should or should not consider
  10. Decided to pull the trigger on a new build after searching all over the west to find a dealer that had what we wanted with no luck. We are ordering a RSB2375 with a Mercury 300 with all the goodies in the Smokey granite with Metallic White accent with the glacier white upgraded upholstery and carbon accent, elevated helm, double Bimini, recliner upgrade,Simrad Gps G05, seagrass flooring ,etc.etc.. But I have a few questions, Does anybody have the heavy thread top stitch ? do you like it ? is it worth the upgrade? What prop are you running with the 300 ? what speed can I expect ? Looking forward to getting her and spending many summers on the water .
