    Very cool site and forum. bought my first boat this month, a 2014 SSLX with SPS package and a 200 hp Yamaha. no trailer, but i got to take over the covered slip on Cherokee Lake in East Tennessee. Family and i are thrilled, looking forward to many great hours on the water.

    Congratulations on your new boat, this really is a great site extremely helpful people with fast replies, i have a 2014 22' slx similar to yours, and absolutely love the boat. Bennington is a Fantastic builder, with light maintenance you will have this boat for a long time. Congrats again and enjoy your new boat!

    After having jet ski's for a few years my first boat was also a Bennington. I'm now on my second one and will not even consider another brand.

    thanks everyone! i am working on the pics. i do not use any file sharing sites and a direct post of a pic is not easy if at all possible. I will work on it and post as soon as possible.

    Yeah, I noticed with the new format the allowed pic size was reduced. With all the "requirements" to post pics it should be more generous.
