    Finally Got Wet!

    Well, we finally got out this past Saturday!  This was our first outing for the season.  Had a great time with the guy (and his wife, of course) who helped a great deal with the construction of my boat. After about 4 hours the sky got real ugly, so I called it quits for the day.  Would...

    Fuel Water Separator Bowl Difficult to Remove

    I have a Racor fuel/water separator with the clear bowl.  The clear bowl was almost impossible to remove from the old cartridge.  Is there anything that can be put on the threads to make it easier to remove in the future? I did search of this site and found where cwag911 had recommended...

    Seriously Considering a Cover

    I'm getting very close to attempting to sew a combination mooring/towing cover for my boat.  I ordered some fabric samples to help make a decision on a color scheme.  The fabric is currently on sale and there's an additional 10% off if I buy before the end of the month. I have already bought...

    Lake View Marine on Webster Lake in MA held an awesome event this past Saturday.  It was their Customer Appreciation combined with the 5th annual Bennington Owners Club Day.

    New Bimini Canvas

    Hey All I am wanting to get matching canvas for both of my biminis. My canvas guy estimated about $1000 labor for him to construct them. I'm too cheap to want to spend that much. Especially, when I consider the other canvas work I want to add in the future. I have decided to take on the canvas...

    Hey All, Our son and daughter-in-law had a baby girl on Saturday afternoon. She was a whopping 5 lbs 11 ozs and 18 3/4 inches in length. We all have been waiting a long time for the arrival of "Kayleigh Lauren". I'm looking forward to getting her on the boat next season.

    Forward Bimini Advice Needed

    Hi All, I have recently ordered a new 8' long "forward" bimini frame and the fabric to make a cover for it. I can't decide if I should have the forward bimini fold forward or backwards on the boat. Most of the forward biminis that I have seen fold forward (at least while in the "radar"...

    WTB - Bimini Frame

    Hey All, I'm looking to install a forward bimini on my boat. According to my Bennington dealer, the only ones available are 9' or longer. I am looking for an 8' frame. I know that I will have to have a custom cover made, but was hoping to at least locate an 8' frame. Any ideas?

    Permission to come aboard?

    Hi All, I do not own a Bennington pontoon, but would consider it a priviledge to join this group. I have constructed a 22 1/2' tri-hulled all wooden pontoon boat. I have been working on this boat for about 15 years now. The hulls, deck, console and rails are made of various types of...
