    Eyelit for Crane/Hoist on Bennington?

    At our yacht club we have a transfer crane/hoist that is used to move boats in and out of our dry dock area. It's also used to clean boats, etc. I'm trying to determine if there is a way to properly lift my 22 SLX with this hoist. Essentially you need an eyelit that you hook the hoist to...

    Pulled The Trigger Boat Arrives in a Week

    Picked Up Our First Kneeboard for the Bennington!

    sony radio

    Yep, would be covered by your warranty.  Contact your dealer. Is the volume only low for the radio?  Or is it also low on CD?
