    Pictures From The Lake

    Too much rain here (central Alabama). Thankfully we are on a controlled lake that is kept full pool year round, ie not flooded like the one above us. Hopefully the water will start dropping in the next 12 hours.

    303 fabric guard

    For anybody that uses 303 fabric guard, Amazon has it for $40.01 for a gallon. Here is a link to it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000AY1W7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    New to Bennington

    Plus the weight of the electric motor and lower unit. Weight will have to be shaved from the boat and figure out how to make the electric motor as light as possible. I know of one brand of pontoon that uses a composite decking. They claim it saves 500 pounds, but that number seems high to me.

    Bunk size. 2x4. Or 2x6

    I had a trailer with 2x4 bunks and now have a trailer with 2x6 bunks. It is way easier to load on the 2x6 bunks and have never had a problem with the pontoons not settling down in the cradle. I have seen pontoons not settle down in 2x4 bunks though. I don't want another trailer that doesn't have...

    Anyone use a "rear view mirror"?

    I would agree with you that this time of year pulling a skier (if you have this mirror), a spotter isn't a necessity. I was mainly meaning when there is a lot of boat traffic. The field of vision with this mirror is incredible. In Alabama, you must have either a spotter or 78 square inches of...

    Anyone use a "rear view mirror"?

    I have the wider PTM edge mirror. I got it off of amazon "used like new" for about half price. You can check amazon to see if they have any used or used like new, but they don't have them all the time. The larger mirror does block my view slightly (might just be where I have it mounted though)...

    2014 2275 GCW

    I can see both sides of this. From the sellers standpoint, they want to make sure someone is serious and not wasting their time. However, the seller should not say there will be no test drives without an accepted offer. They should encourage you to come over and look at the boat thinking if they...

    Max Speed W/ Bimini Top Raised?

    On my frame of the bimini there is a sticker that says don't exceed 30 mph (this is with the top open). I'm sure it can withstand more than that, but not sure how much more.

    Cleaning toons!!

    I don't have the blackout package, but the piece (skirting) you are referring to is bolted on to the frame cross members. It can be removed with some 9/16 wrenches. I just did this when I cleaned my toons. There are a lot of different ways and products to clean your toons. I would pressure wash...

    Who is in GA/TN near I-75?

    Hopefully it turns earlier than they are even saying now and the impact is very minimal. Keeping everyone that is impacted in my prayers.

    STD helm seat or seat upgrades.

    I have the flip up bolster seat. It was an in stock boat the dealer had. I would have ordered the elevated helm. However, after having the bolster seat I'm really happy with it. Flipping it up raises you way higher than the elevated helm (wouldn't ride like this for an extended time). Also, with...

    Owning a lake house/condo?

    sjhorner9475 had excellent advice. How often will you make a 3.5 hour drive would be a huge decision. Our place is a 1 hour 20 minute drive. We make the trip often. Not sure I would want to drive much further than we do though. If you plan to rent, excellent advice was given above. As someone...
