    Floating water pads

    I do have access to a storage unit on the lake.  It's probably 2' by 8'.  Would that work?

    Floating water pads

    Ok, are there many out there that successfully use one of these floating foam pads in conjunction with their Bennington?  I have an 11 and 8 year old that are active along with many of their friends.  I have no doubt that they will all have a blast, but how much of a pain in the butt for me will...

    Things I would change (formerly Regrets)

    It's a classic catch 22!  If I go with the narrow chair, I don't spill my beverage.  However, if I don't spill my beverage, I consume more calories thus needing the extra wide chair.

    23R VS 25R ride quality and performance questions

    I have a 23 RBR with a 225.  I have not been on a 25' Benny.  That being said, I believe our ride is fantastic.  The only thing I would change about my boat would be to have a bigger engine as it really is exhilarating flying over the water.  Thus, if you are going to throw a 300 on the back...

    Good Bye 2016

    So my ultra long Wisconsin boating season has come to an end (June-September).  Had the boat pulled today to close the season.  Too many sporting activities for the kids over the next month to leave it in any longer as it would just sit there.  Of note, I have lost 11-12 mph off my top speed...

    Bird Deterrents

    So I installed the stopgull product on my boat today.  I used the boat vent 3 on the 1st and 3rd vent positions and I was actually able to use their Bimini product on my Bimini without having to modify it.  I then attached the three stopgull airs and they are now spinning above the boat...

    Simon Motor Sports and my Verado

    That would be funny as I was trying to get the next size down as I have been topping out at 5400-5500 rpms.  It would be a welcome change.

    Simon Motor Sports and my Verado

    So my boat will go in the water this weekend (damn Wisconsin weather).  I would like to decide this week if I am going to do the re flash.  I've heard from one person that did have pre and post numbers that did not have much of a top end boost.  Is there anybody else out there that has these...

    Engine Size & Blackout Package & Other Newbie Questions

    I might have some knowledge about the Yamaha shortly.  I currently have the 225 Vmax SHO.

    Engine Size & Blackout Package & Other Newbie Questions

    FYI, I just use a swim noodle to keep the door to my in floor storage propped open and it works well.  The first time I left it completely open and it made a small indentation in my furniture vinyl.
