    2022 Q - it's finally gonna happen!

    My dealer loaned me a boat to use all summer 2020, It was a preordered 2019 that the guy did not want, so they shipped it to me and let me break it in and keep all summer till my new boat got in.

    New boat, accessory time

    Like the post above stated, I would definitely nix the arch idea. My boat is 24' and with a 300 hp only runs 41 MPH GPS speed. You boat with a 115 hp might get to 25 MPH.

    New boat, accessory time

I had dealer tell me it was almost impossible to remove it as it was going to cost me 5k. It really impresses others, which I am not...

    New Yamaha Break-In Procedures

    Higher octane will NOT hurt your motor, as a matter of fact 91-93 Octane is all I run. It will unless any horsepower left on the table if your motor is tuned for it. Also I have had alot of new boats and never had a issue driving it like I stole it from the getgo. I test drove all threes Bennys...

    2022 Q - it's finally gonna happen!

    If the Arch is on hold cancel it, we hate our arch, I wish I had a double or even single 12' Bimini.

    Hydro Hoist Boat Lift

    I use straps on mine w/ 300 hp, Bennington is ok with this. Most of the people on our lake use straps. 3500 Boat lifts.
