So where do you put your trash, Kay?!?
We just throw it in the lake.
Thank you so much for doing you part to soak up the chemical run off! The trash acts as a magnet to collect the chemicals! Great job!!!
I hate where the GPS/Depthfinder is located. It's below the steering on the right. You can't see it!! I don't know why Bennington designed it that way! If I would have known, I would have had it mounted on top of the helm.
Completely agree with this, Terrible location to mount the fish finder.
What year, model, helm, and fish finder do you have that they mount in that location? That does sound bad.
Our 2017 (SSBXP) had ours mounted up top and center between our two more traditional dials.
("What year, model, helm, and fish finder do you have that they mount in that location? That does sound bad.")
Viking, Mine is mounted about where your switch panel is on the right of the wheel. Maybe even lower.
2016 2250 GSR. My dealer didn't have one to see and the pictures and
literature don't show it also.
Very disappointed. I'm going to talk to the dealer to see if it can be changed, but I doubt it!!
Seems like there is a couple of other spots that would have been better for visibility. I wonder why they mounted it there In 2016? I hope they can work with you on all of it.
Just spit-balling here since I don’t know your layout. If somewhat similar to my helm, I wonder if the easiest approach would be an aesthetically pleasing cover panel on the left and right of the wheel, within which you just flip around what’s mounted in each spot...?
The helm on my boat was molded for the gps to be mounted where it is! Just poor design!!
I think the only way to fix it would be to mount gps on top of the helm and put some kind of plate over the hole but I think that
would look bad!!
New 22ssbxp coming next week.
Smokey granite with metallic sorel accent
Tuscan dune interior
SPS with Yami 150
Ski tow bar
Adjustable height helm
I regret being to cheap to shell out 3k for the great looking blackout and 1k for in floor storage . Lol. However we're very excited and will be very happy with our new Benny. This forum has been very helpful, however, I didn't see this or even know a build sheet existed until after I ordered the boat.
Waiting for spring in MN .
My 22ssbxp was just delivered and I’ve been out a couple of times. I have the Yamaha 150hp also and it runs great. I’m surprised how quiet the motor is! We love the swing back seating. I’m the popular family member now, everyone wants to hang out with us!!
Good to hear you like the 150. Another thought is should I have gone with the 200? Too cheap once again. Actually I would have pulled the trigger on the 200 but my wife caught wind of it so I guess how fast does one need to go on a pontoon.
We have a 200 Mercury V-pro on a 24 SSBXP SPS. Love it! Although we like our blackout package and in floor storage, they are both pretty pricey, and only one has any practical use. I wouldn’t sweat it.
A 150 on a 22 SSBXP is going to be great too. You’re going to LOVE it! Besides, you’ll see a little better MPG. It’s too easy to wonder about more horsepower. A 150 on a 22’ SPS S-series will have great performance.
If you're going to get a big motor, get at least a 150. If you have money to burn, go bigger.
If you want to waste as much money as possible, get a 115. I learned that one the hard way.
