    Sold the Benny

    We bought it from the original owners in 2016 and they hadn’t used since 2012 or 2013. It needed a lot of TLC at the time but it tuned out great. The fence replacement was a big job but I learned a lot about the boat and was glad I did it myself.

    Sold the Benny

    Well it’s kind of a bitter sweet day. I sold my 2001 2575FS. I bought the boat in 2016 and have done a ton of work to it but just really wanting something a little different. Leaning towards going to a 22 or 23 foot tritoon with a 150 minimum. I realize I’ll probably be going without for a...

    Finally replaced my aluminum fencing

    I sprayed them first with Starbrite mildew remover and then rinsed off completely. Then we started scrubbing with Starbrite ultimate vinyl cleaner.

    2014 24ssrx 90 yamaha prop

    I’m running on a Solas aluminum 13 pitch 4 blade on F100 on a 2575FS. I played with all kinds of props and this one worked out the best.

    Seat damage

    I had a little place come up on of my seats. My upholstery guy said to put a tiny drop of clear super glue on it to keep it from getting bigger till he could get to it.

    Finally replaced my aluminum fencing

    Yeah after doing some digging I think I’d be better off just selling it as a really nice used pontoon and finding a nice used Tritoon. Something tells me there’s gonna be a big used market with some super nice stuff within the next year....

    Finally replaced my aluminum fencing

    I’ve got Tritoon fever bad though. Just trying to figure out if I should add a middle pontoon to mine and find a nice used 150 or sell it and hope to find one in the off season.

    Finally replaced my aluminum fencing

    I don’t have any good close up pics of the lips but this was after I removed them and before we got the black foam strips off. We got that part off with a straight tip screwdriver for the most part. I was going to add it back when I flipped the panels to help with rattling but it wasn’t needed...

    Finally replaced my aluminum fencing

    I’ll have to dig around to see if I have any pics of the lips. But yes I used pliers and bent the lips back and forth along the seam and took it off in sections. We then ground them down smooth and they cleaned up great. As far as a wrap I thought about it but my panels were already dented up...

    1999 22' with a 100hp Yamaha - Speed?

    Those Solas props are hard to beat for the price. I really like them!

    1999 22' with a 100hp Yamaha - Speed?

    That’s way better but that motor at WOT should be right around 6000 rpms.

    New interior for my 2001 2575 LX

    Great job! I wish I would’ve replaced my carpet with vinyl when I replaced all my fencing last year on my 2001 2575FS. That may be this winters project!
