    Kicker KMC 10 "Dead" on my new Bennington!

    It may be a coincidence, but if you build a new boat on the website, they no longer offer the Kicker head unit, now it is a Rockford Fosgate unit. They still show a Kicker speaker upgrade though.

    STD helm seat or seat upgrades.

    I didn't care for the elevated helm and opted just for the adjustable height seat. I have the upgrade R series recliner and it is nice.

    What kind of trailer do I want?

    Still needing a trailer for end of summer take out. I saw a wolverine at a local place but it only had 2 bunks. Do I have to have 3 for a triple? I am only towing about 5 miles spring and fall. Thanks.

    What kind of trailer do I want?

    This seems like the way I'll go. What length or capacity do I need for a 22ssrx w/extended aft and Yamaha 150?

    What kind of trailer do I want?

    I am getting my new 22SSRX SPS this weekend. The marina is on my lake so I will just drive it back to my slip, where it will stay until the fall. Then I will need a trailer to take it out, service it myself and the tow to indoor storage. My last twin tube had a Karavan crank up trailer. What...

    Build date?

    They told me it was delivered to the dealer yesterday and now they have to rig the F150 and do whatever else the dealer does to get a new boat ready. I'm hoping I can get it on Friday(it is Tuesday now).

    Build date?

    I ordered a boat at the Milwaukee boat show last winter, but it didn't go as planned: http://club.benningtonmarine.com/posts/129333/ So we reordered a 22SSRXPDN W/Yamaha 150 on 5/15/19. At the time he said I should have it by the 4th of July, which is a big deal here. They have fireworks over...

    Cost for new hydraulic lift w/canopy?

    I spoke with another guy who was quoting a 24v winch type, rather than hydraulic and was a few grand cheaper. This is still with solar and remote. Any reason that would not be as good as hydraulic?

    Finally Took Delivery

    WOW! It looks awesome and almost identical to what I'm getting. I am curious of the performance with the Yamaha 150. Can you tell us how fast you can go and with what load? Also did you get power steering? If not, how does it handle? Thanks!

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    Well maybe not. The marina chain has multiple locations. I placed the order with a guy I met at the boat show. When it was delivered to my local marina and I found the issues, I spoke to the on site guy who was cool. Today I spoke with the boat show guy who said "You customized a boat and it...

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    Thank you all for the advice and well wishes. We drove it again this morning. This time 5 people including salesman. The get up and go is good, but at wide open we could only hit 31 mph. The 2 stroke seemed rather noisy, and not as smooth as our Yamaha. I also didn't like the elevated helm...

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    Well the Evinrude is "supposed" to put out 148 HP that's why I thought it would be ok. I guess the 2 stroke has more bottom end, launching power than top speed, which is probably ok. It did launch really hard and get on plane very fast. Water sports is not our main pastime, I just want the...

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    I am going back tomorrow with my sons. I spoke to another employee at the marina and he said while he understands my disappointment with the top speed based on the boat show salesman's claim, that is decent performance for a 22 foot triple w/extended aft deck. If I want faster, I should expect...

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    I don't know the prop size. We were at 5,900 RPM at 33 mph. I moved the trim all the way up and it never went any faster. The guy thought a pitch change may gain 1 mph. Once gear and people are aboard, I think 30 mph may be tops. My old boat could do 24 that way, not that much difference for...

    22SSRX w/Evinrude 135 HO ordered!

    OK so the boat is in and we drove it today and I'm not sure what to think. With 3 of us on board and no other gear, I could only hit 33 mph. I expected more. I could have swore my neighbor with a 23ssrx and Yamaha 150 was nearing 40 mph. I didn't sign for it and told them I had to think over...
