    Excited about our new 21SLX

    Had the boat out in some significant chop today for the first time. Winnipesaukee is a big lake, over 72 square miles, and had winds gusting to 20 or so. Wasn't sure what to expect, being a novice. Gotta say- I was VERY impressed with my Bennington, and so happy I got the SPS package. Felt super...

    Excited about our new 21SLX

    Hmm.... now you have me thinking.... just what the dealer told me. Noise disappears immediately when I throttle above 1600 rpm. What does intake noise sound like? Thanks!

    Portable battery jump-start pack

    Met my new 21slx at the dealer last week, take delivery next week. The boat had already been ordered with 1 battery. Asked about adding a 2nd battery, and they said it might be $300-400. In lieu of that, anybody here carry a portable jump-start battery pack? Ever use it to jump your boat? How...

    New to boating, 1st Bennington

    Thanks folks! Local marina sells fuel that contains ethanol, but they treat it with an additive of some sort. You guys run normal gasoline or ethanol-free in your Yamaha outboards?

Taking delivery in a week and a half, can't wait to get it on the water! New to boating, rented a pontoon for two days this summer and the family loved...
