    Front shade

    I use 2" PVC and a toilet flange ( the grey piece) as a base. Right now it is just tied on with 3/16 line to the cleat at the base of the PVC. I will use zip ties the next time to free up the cleats for docking ropes. Used adapters at the top that necked down to 1.5" pipe for the cross beam...

    Front shade

    We had the kids down to Lake Cumberland and our Daughter has a 4 month old. We needed some shade to keep mom and baby comfortable. I built a $100 front "Bimini". It actually worked good. I left it up while we were tubing and it handled the speed without a problem.

    Box anchor

    FYI - the box anchor needs anchor rope with some give to keep from popping the anchor loose. I was using double diamond braided line and was dragging the anchor when rocking from boat wakes. I emailed Slide Anchor "3/8 braided nylon is what I would recommend. Use a two-to-one scope.......20...

    Talking with a Bennington Dealer

    Last Friday we stopped at Lookout Marine in Somerset KY to order a new trailer for the big boat. Talked to the general manager about his business this year. The most interesting comment was that if your engine had a problem, you might be done for the year. They have been in business for 40...

    Pontoon guide ons

    Yes but Ram is installing the Hellcat engine in the the Ram for 2021. As the article today said Ford brought a knife to the gunfight this year. Ford's motor in the transmission is nice but not a game-changer. My problem is that the electric trucks might get 250 miles. Tomorrow I am driving...

    Is this a great idea or what. Found on Facebook, Bennington pontoon owners

    It will only work on a engine that the pivot pin is behind the transom. Our Mercury 150 pivots insides the well and all the steering and wires and fuel lines are in the engine well.

    Box anchor

    It uses much less than others, some anchors need 8:1. It needs some rode. In 60', if you put out 80' the wave action from wakes can pull it loose. I love looking at all the anchor ropes going straight down and the boats floating around with the owners thinking they are anchored.

    Box anchor

    We have a small and the baby box. The small will hold the 25' toon but you do have to get enough anchor line out. A 2:1 rode will work which is the advantage of the box anchor. We anchor in 60 - 80' and have to use 120' of line to know it will hold. We use the baby on the stern to stop the...
