    Hi Guys! Has anyone either purchased or rigged up a Basketball hoop to mount on their Bennington ? My Grandson likes playing, I'm sure everyone on the boat would enjoy also. Thanks!

    Yeah, I don't encourage the act of throwing items towards the boat!

    No, but shouldn't be too hard. First how old is he, or how tall does the pole need to be? Real ball or nerf or in between? If little guy, buy a nerf one and take it with. If not, Install a flush base for a table, get a piece(s) of tubing (alum,pvc) to fit, mount into base, add some guy wires, install size appropriate hoop & backboard. Piece of cake, but not very durable I would think, plus moves with boat. Or, get a screw in anchor and build from that. Assuming you are going to be in the shallows. http://www.landmsupply.com/departme...MIrOOPubCN2AIVkIuzCh1SFgPuEAQYAyABEgIaTfD_BwE Lots of variables, I doubt you will get a simple set up able to hold a regulation size hoop/board. Plus, they make floaters. https://www.google.com/search?q=flo...rome..69i57.6022j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
