    Bimini

    My Bimini has popped off twice on my 2022 20LLG SPS running ~25MPH. I was lucky and caught it quick so no damage other than a rail scratch. The Bimini strut clips are plastic and the “tooth” that keeps it in place is a POS.

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    Thanks for all the feedback. I wonder if this "tech" could have reset the ECM other wise I dont see how he could have done all that he said he did in in .2Hrs (12 minutes?). Im going to take a breath and decide on reporting all this to Bennington. TBH I had several phone calls with the southeast...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    Nitro - I know there are folks who would run the shit out of a motor out the gate. Im a 30 year machinist and I would not. I had a 115 Merc for 15 years and had zero issues. If I dont get that out of this Yamaha I will always suspect the original "water test". I spoke with the "Tech" who did the...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    Apparently my engine came in Tuesday. I was notified tonight via email everything is ready. Also said in the email they took it out for a water test. That irritates TF out of me as I asked them last week if we could take it out before signing and the answer was "No, we don't do water tests on...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    Today I drove to the dealer (2hrs) to look at our boat sitting on the trailer w/out a motor. Waiting on the 115F. Boat (20LLG SPS) looked good. Yacht Club P2035TG looked good but I noticed there was no bunk under the center tube. Dealer said, "oh thats an add on kit...its on order". (They've had...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    Thanks Potomac - Balanced sounds good to me for a start unfortunately when i asked the dealer their prop intention and response was "Solas 13" which is a really lazy and vague excuse for a prop description let alone a P/N grrrrrr. I have no idea if their interpretation of "Solas 13" is SS or...

    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    Well.... last week the Bennington Regional Rep told me the motor was in transit and the boat would ship last Friday. Today my dealer emailed me stating that they are supposed to receive the motor on the 20th but said nothing on the boat. I honestly dont know anymore. The delays and the...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    What engine mounting hole (height) is best suited for a 20LLG with a Yamaha 115F? What prop/pitch would be recommended? (We typically have two to four adult passengers and will occasionally pull tube. Freshwater lake.) I'm sure the dealer plans to install at what height and prop they like. Would...

    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    Our 20LLG was ordered on February 17th. Nothing fancy with a few upgrades and standard Yamaha 115. On April 22nd I spoke to the Bennington southeast region rep. and was told estimated production date was June 1st but due to covid related supply chain issues and the ice storm in Texas, that was...

    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    Anyone know why my posts arent showing up? I havent said any expletives or anything defamatory. I did say that covid and the weather is the new catchall excuse for everything and maybe a 1% discount for every week late on boat orders would help frustration.
