Just Purchased Our First Benny

The only reason(other than strapping down towables) that I can figure is possibly for trailering. It may be a way of applying a pressure on the release latch so a bump doesn't relieve pressure on the latch and the wind could cause the top to tilt backwards into the "toy loading position" . Really don't see a need for it while just in normal water use. But that's just my opinion. I've only ever seen one in real life.

Derrick, I think you are correct. Although there is a secondary tie down in case the latch opens. It probably wouldn't hurt to use while trailering.

My boat originally had the same top (Was replace with double biminis), and I have a bag with those straps sitting in my garage. I was told they are for tying tubes and other water tows down on top of the tower.

Some pics from our last trip. Loving this new Benny! We have already referred some new friends to our dealer and they bought a new boat that week. Now we are planning more weekend out on the lake.

Hello Bennington Friends, I purchased a 22 SSRX about  3-4 weeks ago in California, I was told of a Bennington membership club that would give me another 2 yrs of warranty status on my new boat. By joining this site am I on board or is there another application from Bennington that must be submitted. If so where can i Find that paperwork?  Any advice is appreciated...I'm new so sorry if I posted on the wrong page.

Thanks,

 

Big Bernie
