    Portal Covers??

    Any metal supplier, like Alro, or probably a local fabrication shop. But you can order it online, McMaster-Carr is a reliable company to order from. Search for either aluminum perforated sheets or aluminum wire cloth. You can also order your fasteners there as well.

    Best Combination for Skiing & Tubing

    For what it's worth, I thought I would give my input as well. I agree with BulldogsCadillac on all his comments. We made the 115 mistake also, were lucky to find a great deal on our current boat. The Sport Tower is heavy and certainly hurts our top speed, I think my boat is around 4900lbs...

    No Sound from Stereo

    UPDATE: Sorry, it's finally warm here, been boating more than "surfing". Dealer/Bennington came thru and covered it under warranty. Thanks for all the help and I hope you have a great remaining summer.

    No Sound from Stereo

    Great minds think alike, I had the exact thing inside the helm, in the center toon storage, and in both rear chaise compartments with all the cushions up for storage this year. Do you keep it in there all year?

    No Sound from Stereo

    I have that capability at work, but not sure it's worth a head unit that doesn't appear to be a high dollar item. Crutchfield said nothing can control that remote and I need to get a new one. They quoted a $200 package, head unit and remote, but I haven't researched anything else. Looks...

    No Sound from Stereo

    I did that, checked the contacts and reinstalled. No change

    My Bennington seems to be a nice boat but...

    I second the, "document everything" statement! Names, times, dates & notes are a huge asset during mediation and/or court. So sorry to see that, I know the feeling of seeing a sinking toon, but mine wasn't nearly that bad. I can tell you that my boat was successfully repaired and I have no...

    No Sound from Stereo

    I'm looking for some insight from the group's audiophiles, my stereo will not work this year. I have a 2013, with a Sony Head unit, Sony dash mounted remote and the Wetsounds Sub and amps (not sure if they are Kicker), from the factory. The display on the head unit does not illuminate, the...

    CERAMIC NANO COATING

    I'm very tempted to try the HydroSilex this summer. $60/bottle, and it might last the season?? Seems like a gamble worth taking?? Anyone have any bad experiences with this stuff??

    My first Bennington

    We have 1 year in on the previous model, “The Atom”. It held up great, I’m watching the stitching, but so far so good. On the aggressive side, my cocky 11 year old, 24 & 26 year old nephews have had some hellacious rides. The only complaint is their legs wear on the spheres when riding on...

    My first Bennington

    While we are spending your money...we bought the previous model of this tube, and we couldn't be happier. Only the three spheres touch the water, so the platform is suspended in the air. It's very stable, so even very young kids (with an adult) can safely and happily ride at slow speeds. 1-3...

    My first Bennington

    The PTM Edge mirror is probably your best choice. Check out the forum posts, there are some other choices, these are expensive, but seem really nice. https://ptmedge.com/pxr-100-pro-pontoon-mirror-system/

    My first Bennington

    Congrats! We also made the switch from inboards to the pontoon world (can't see us ever going back)! I don't notice any difference in handling due to fuel level, but now maybe I will?? My experience with boats has been with an I/O, you can forward or reverse in any directions and the boat...

    Post up your other toys or hobbies ..... AGAIN

    Looks like we need to rig up a waterproof battery box, a 12v pump and a spray gun for a paddleboat showdown.  Congrats on the Craigslist find!
