    Wondering if anyone has a rough idea of what a new panel might cost? I can only imagine how many calls and emails its going to take to get accurate info. Time will tell. ….. lots and lots of time I figure

    Replacement panel it is… I best sit down where I hear the costs; this photo was taken Wednesday and oddly the seat has expanded in the summer heat and looked better today. Good enuf to finish the season for sure.

    thanks for the reply... perfect example of what a "slight moment on non-attention" can result in.... I've got 23 hours on this..(not my first boat)... by any means....which upsets me even more... Anyway..., like a guy at the marina said...you've got to get over your first bump!! Was pulling...

    au contraire as i could not disagree with you more as I tried a "come a long" initially, which unfortunately jammed on me.... but, i could easily see this "will not be an easy task" .... strong arms and a hammer won't work here. Perhaps a good reason we bought into "Bennington" !!

    Bottom painting pontoons for lake use in the Carolina's

Not familiar with Lake Murray as we’re new to area, but, you may or may not know that Lake Wylie is man made and controlled by Duke Energy. As of today the water is like mud, no exaggeration...it obviously changes over the course of...
