    Ready for boating!

    Beautiful and mid 70s here. Unfortunately, we've had about 10 inches of rain in the past week, so the lake was a big debris field.

    New 24 LXSB Arrived

    I feel for you. We lived in Iowa for 17 years. Definitely enjoy the longer boating season in Alabama.

    New 24 LXSB Arrived

    Picked up the new arrival on Friday and got some lake time on Saturday (cloudy and low 70s here). Have about another half hour to get through the first 2 hour break-in period.

    LX23 or LX24?

    We ordered a 24 LXSB primarily because the port lounge on the 23 LXSB didn't have a front facing seat, it just stops at the port gate.

    Free Bennington merch for new boat owners

    Wonder what "purchases" means? If I put my deposit down in October and take delivery in February, think I'll qualify?

    Prop Testing New Boat

    The 2nd hour of the break-in procedure does call for acceleration to get the boat on plane then backing off, but not WOT. Then varied RPMs through hour 10, with no more than 5 minutes at a time of WOT.

    Prop Testing New Boat

    I was assuming the "make oil" issue was being caused by NOT following the break-in procedure. Also thought I had read that problem wasn't really an issue any longer.

    Prop Testing New Boat

    I have a 24LXSB with VF200 on order. The dealer has told me they do prop sizing prior to delivery. I asked them if that should be done, given everything I've read says no WOT until after the initial 2 hours of break-in. The salesman said don't worry about it - but I'm worried about it...
