i wonder.....been lurking here for many months. I don’t see a proper place for Benningtons decade old fiberglass boats but maybe some on here have one and we could get the conversation going.

Mine is a 2004 rl210 with a Honda 150. Went to sw Wisconsin ( from middle Tennessee) to get it preowned in 2011. It’s on a Bennington painted and lettered double axle trailer.

Back in the day, there were 2 models ( rl210 and rl211) which had to do with hull length, as well as a number of variations. Mine is a super sport, with a red body stripe and interior highlights. Rl211 could be had either stern drive or outboard....rl210 only outboard. 210 could be had in a fish and ski variation.

So, any other owners on here? Let’s share information. Lakeside

Glad to see someone start this topic. We just brought my father-in-laws RL210 up to Maryland from Jacksonville, FL. Boat is in great shape but needs a good cleaning before we test it out. Do you get any manuals when you picked up your boat? I can't find anything online.

Yes, I have the owners packet- came in a green Bennington vinyl pouch. The information is not particularly useful, but I suppose better than nothing.

Questions- did yours have the ski tow bar? I’m looking for one.

Did yours have the Bennington cooler? Went under the seat to the rear of the sink.

Good luck with yours. We’ve had ours since 2011. Works well for us and our extended family members. It’s garaged on its Bennington branded trailer. We tow it about 2 miles to launch.

There are others. Someone recently started a thread about a very well-preserved Benny deck boat he was in the process of buying.

Welcome!

And we need PHOTOS from both of you!

Hey, timbers.....

When you get a chance as you’re cleaning up the 210, I would be interested in how your boat is propped, as in size and pitch.

I don’t think I am running an appropriate ss prop at the moment, although it is the one that came on the motor when I picked the boat up. ( rl210, Honda 150 outboard both 2004)

Let me know....lakeside
