    IMG_0162.JPG IMG_0166.jpeg IMG_0167.JPG IMG_0168.JPG IMG_0171.JPG IMG_0173.JPG first off I need to thank this forum and the opinions and comments made by the owners out there. Without me finding and following these posts I would have another 17k in the bank and a different Bennie sitting in the driveway.My son and I went to a local boat show and ordered a good 20 foot basic Bennie to cut our teeth on. After further review following opinions on this post I decided we needed to get closer to that "last boat first" philosophy. So at this point we are thrilled with our 2019 22SSX tri toon with the sports package and looking forward to our salt water experience in the Gulf. Pretty much have saturated the local lakes of central Florida already in a month.At this point from our salesperson, dealer and boat I wouldn't have changed a thing- a BIG no regrets. As a previous GM for a RV dealership for 20 years I had my expectations from a dealer-Suffice to say my dealer " nailed it"!!! Thanks again all for the opinions! Yep, that one is a pic of a happy and thrilled wife!

    Very nice boat. I'm in the studying phase and still going back and forth over the model I want. I want to be able to fish occasionally and it wouldn't be primary. Initially didn't want a fishing pontoon, but rather a cruiser type pontoon I could fish from. But I really like your set-up on this model in the back. Just curious on these, where is your trolling motor and controls? Thanks and great boat! Steve
