I’m sure anything to do with boats will be deemed an “essential service”!!!!

Here is the latest update from Bennington .


In compliance with the state of Indiana's Stay-at-Home order, Bennington has paused production on March 24, 2020. We plan to resume production when this order is lifted on April 7, 2020. This is an ever-evolving situation, so please contact your dealership for the current status of your new Bennington or parts orders. Bennington staff will continue to support our owners and dealerships during this time. For future updates, please follow this link: https://www.BenningtonMarine.com/en-us/polaris-coronavirus-response/.

Contact your local dealer:

Hopefully all manufacturers will have a pause in production.
This will help prevent excess inventory. Excess inventory kills dealers.

I drove past the factory on the freeway this past Thanksgiving. There were more boats sitting there than I have ever seen. Hundreds... if not more.

Yeah, there's no shortage of product out there by any means.

Just saw some emails trading between my dealer and Bennington as late as yesterday so the factory is still “working”. Likely not fabricating but good to see they haven’t turtled up completely.

Probably working from home. Almost the standard now.

Looks like Indiana extended their stay at home order until April 21, starting to worry we won’t get our boat by end of May, hopefully dealer will give us our other boat back until the new one comes in.
