As I dream about my Benny arriving in April:

I noted the 26 LX has the same Deck and Pontoons as all other 25 models, but it appears they have extended the engine back an additional 6" which has increased the LOA to 27'9". Any thoughts on how this would affect performance? Seems odd this is the ONLY model to which this has been done (the L has the standard 27'3" LOA). I originally thought just a typo, but then looking at pictures, it does appear the Transom extents further out the back of the Benny!?!? Just curious, seems the Dealers have not seen many, if any, of these 26LX's yet.

This is my 26 LX with the extended aft deck. Can’t say I compared it to others but does seem like it sticks out the back. I thought this was the same as the R series 25? Thought they just changed the rounding between the two series.

Here is the spec comparison I did when trying to figure out the variances between the Benny's Same Toon Length, Same Deck, but the LX is 6" longer. Upon looking again, it appears everything in the L series is longer. The 25' L's Toon and Deck is 1 foot shorter than the 25 R, yet still has that extra 6" LOA. I am curious why / what was changed. Vs the R & Q series, you can see the Transom appears to be longer. An interesting puzzle.....
