    QX line

    “I don’t think you’re understanding his point. The boat was designed for what’s on there. All you are going to do is force the front down further in the water, the rear ain’t going anywhere. It’s not going to change like a fulcrum point (see-saw). You now increase the potential drag AND increase...

    Floating Work Dock

    Put a sheet of plywood on top of that mat and it’s perfect.

    Floating Work Dock

    Foam sandwiched between plywood is the common thing in Sarasota. It’s kinda heavy. But cheap. Very stable.

    Where does bilge water exit

    My bilge pumps dumps into the motor bay area, well or whatever you call that. It’s up high right next to plywood. Turn bilge on and start filling up from a hose. Also a good way to check the auto too, note, it takes a ton of water to activate.

    QX line

    Zipper lube from Walmart. Non-staining. A tube will last years. I use it on snaps and hinges too.

    Bottom painting

    No need for bottom paint on lift. Hose off after each use, hit the lift too. Use a marine lube on lift pulleys once a year. No grease on cables, use a cable lube. I do my cables twice a year but that’s probably overkill. Definitely have the proper anodes put on, ask local maintenance guys...

    Replacement pontoon cover/bimini/changing room options

    I’m in Sarasota area and remove all fabric that I can, except motor cover. I also now lay down the Bimini frames and tie them down. Last year an empty frame in the front ended up in the back of boat. Somehow not a scratch. I strap lift to pilings and strap boat to lift. (I see controversy on...

    Best support for a Bennington 22-foot Tritoon with 150 HP Yamaha for my boat. need answers?

    You may want to check with a fabricator. I had two walkboards made and installed for less than 1/2 price of boat lift guys. He made all the stuff needed. The walkboards are nicer than the boat lift guys too.

    What are some ideas on growing this forum?

    Laurence is spot on. I wanted to see all the color combos. I asked a senior guy at Bennington if they could start a section with colors and various configurations, one that could be sorted. I wanted to see all the Q’s and R’s. He thought it was a great idea. Crickets since. The booklet just...

    Blackout vs aluminum heat issue.

    Someone was asking the other day about blackout vs plain aluminum. I have the blackout package and I was putting gas in boat today. I noticed when I had my hand on black Bimini railing it was warm but not uncomfortable at all. This section was facing due south and zero clouds in sky at 2:30pm...

    S SERIES VS L SERIES vs all others, deck construction

    I have the opposite of Jack M. Black with white strips. I thought the black would really suck, but the water spots are not tough to deal with. I do get a little black steak on the white and that is a bit of a hassle to deal with. So with that said I am in the process of buying a deionzer for...
