      Hi, I am wondering about your power steering install. I have purchased a unit and am ready to install but i have noticed in the instructions it says all hoses should be longer than 6 ft. In the picture you posted it appears your are 3-4 ft. in length. I am wondering if that is the case and if so have you had any issues??

        The hoses under the helm are 3 ft and I've had no issues.

        Ok thanks. Seems to be a strange requirement but i figured you would be a good person to ask. Thank you for the quick response and all the help you've been without even knowing it. This is a great forum

      Did you replace your navigator light bulbs with LEDs? These are the little rod shaped bulbs with the contact points on each end.

        HOW DO YOU GET TO THE BULBS INSIDE THE RED/GREEN DECK LIGHT FIXTURES.


        I took out the screws, but don't want to pull the wire or force the metal housing from the colored plastic?

        You have to remove the lights from the deck and then separate the lights.

      Cwag911, 


      My wife and I are transferring  for work down to Balentine SC and will be very close to Lake Wylie. Do you know how the boating over there is? Lake Norm is to far to travel with my boat every week end. So we are looking for houses by Fort mill area and Ballentine ( wife new job location. me trying to transfer to another GE locatin).


      People up in NY that say they have moved away from there are claiming the lake is dirty and a lot of snakes and water mockensans. And I should sell my benny I just purchased last September. Hate to do that. Any input you can give me would be of great help. Like to trailer it as well. But may have to rent a slip. Thoughts?


      best regards,


      Mike

        Moving Forward: Sorry for the late response, I have been out of it for weeks. Have you decided to go to Lake Norman at this point? I boated Norman for years in my pre-pontoon life and enjoyed it immensely.  We were drawn to the northwest corner of the lake and kept our boat at Lake Norman Marina where the Bennington dealer is located. Great spot but a far piece from my house in SE Charlotte. I grew up on Lake Wylie boating with my uncle and made the move there 4 years ago. Not Norman but still a great lake with approx. 20-25 miles length and 1-2 miles width, I keep my boat at Pier 49 Marina on a hydrohoist and it runs 300 per month for the slip with power and water. 30 minutes from the house and now we can justify a half day when that is all the time we have. Good luck on your decision.
