    Your 2021 College Football Thread

    We go out to Tahoe and ski but here in Alabama we get miserable cold with an occasional inch of snow that no one can drive on, fall is good for breaking out the dirtbike.

    Your 2021 College Football Thread

    As a Alabama fan football is usually fun to watch but I hate the end of summer , it's easy for me to lose interest when you rarely lose, I had to ask my wife if we won the championship last year while I was typing this and she doesn't remember either, I would gladly trade football for year...

    Engine Mounting Hole and Propellor Recommendations

    The dealer we bought our boat from is awful, we knew that going in,they had terrible reviews but had the boat I wanted, I would let a blind one armed monkey service our boat before I took it back to them.

    Cost of new Bennington is way up

    Before we bought our bennington in 20 we looked at them and they were a 10 out of 10. They all came prerigged and we wanted a engine upgrade and I couldn't opt out of the esp hull once I saw and researched it.

    Cost of new Bennington is way up

    The esp hull that Bennington has would make it hard for me to buy a Barletta, but at this point Barletta has them beat on fit, finish and design.

    Cost of new Bennington is way up

    Barletta was started by a company that manufactured motor homes.

    Cost of new Bennington is way up

    Barletta has a warranty equal to Bennington, Sweetwater and aquapatio are a bennington product and hertz audio is a top shelf product equal to jl audio. Manitou doesn't option out as well in my opinion

    Rub Rail Repair or Replace

    Yes I have replaced mine, you will need several 3/16 drill bits, a rivet gun and a heat gun. The aluminum nose cap,rubber rub rail and necessary stainless steel rivets costs about $500, not super hard, I would rate it at about an 8 or 9 beer repair.
