    Hello Everyone. I just joined your site. Recently bought a "new to me" Bennington. It's a 2006 185 gl. Very much looking forward to getting it ready and in the water in Northeast PA. No good photos yet. It's still in storage. We have owned other boats but this is our first Bennington. Looking forward to learning and enjoying.

    Welcome to  the forum.  I have followed many forums but this one is hands above all the rest.  There are very knowledgeable people on this forum eagerly awaiting any and all your questions.  You are going to have a great summer on your Bennie.

    Thank you everyone!


    1Blderbob - Ok, I'll bite. What's PADS?


    Semperfi8387 - SEMPER FI sir!! I will post pics as soon as I can. The previous owner had the boat in indoor storage and it is still there. I have not been able to get any decent photos yet. I will post as soon as I get some once I bring it home.


    We are fortunate to live in a lake community and we will have the boat in the water here. It is called Lake Hauto. It is between Jim Thorpe and Tamaqua.

    Actually,just insert PADS in the search box on the home page. But beware, you'll have some reading ahead. :eek: :p

    Short answer "Pull A Derrick Syndrome". BulldogsCadillac (Derrick) bought (I think) three boats in a 2 year period upgrading each time. Disease applies here to anyone buying multiple replacement boats or contemplating doing so - in a short period of time.  There have been quite a few on the site.
