    Usage of 303 Protectorant

    Hey guys; I've searched here and see older threads on the 303 protectorant. Seems like everyone loved this stuff and it used to be necessary for long term maintenance of the vinyl. However, seems it is required any longer. Question is, do you still use it as another layer of protection even...

    Thoughts on Fender Racks

    I did a search and saw some feedback on fender racks from 2014. I've searched and found some, but shocked at how expensive these can be. Just curious if anyone has good recommendations for reasonably priced fender racks that mount on the stern or bow area outside of the boat. I have 5 fenders...

    Performance was disappointing during first WOT

    I have a 2019 SXP25 tri toon with ESP and a F250 Yamaha. I didn't get into a lot of questions with my dealer around prop size/pitch, etc when I took delivery. They just said they have a lot of experience with matching props/platforms and that I would be fine. In fact, I don't know my specs...

    Officially Bennington Owner today - maiden voyage!

    I picked up the boat today with my son and did the walk through and test ride with the dealer rep. All I can say is WOW! I love this boat! Of course I couldn't get it up to WOT because of the break in period, but it was so smooth, even on a flooded and pretty choppy Ohio River. I had seen...

    New Boat Came in - a few early pictures

    Dealer called yesterday and my boat is in!!! Went today to look at it, but not for the inspection/walkthrough. I just had to see it. It was just recently unwrapped and still very dusty. The motor had been put on and it was in the warehouse and dark, so pictures aren't good. But couldn't...

    Trolling Motor Recommendations

    I've searched a lot here and elsewhere for recommendations on trolling motors. There are a lot of good recommendations about size/thrust, etc. My question is that I want a bow mounted trolling motor that I can remove fairly easily as I won't be fishing all the time. I had one years ago that...

    Feedback on EZ Fenders or other bumper device

    I'm awaiting my boat build and ordering some items that I know I'll need/want. I found the EZ Fenders link on the Pontoonforum and they look like a great design for hanging bumpers on the side rails. I ordered the blackout package and you can get these in black. Just curious if anyone here...

    Boat Color Question

    I recently posted that I just placed an order for a new Bennington 25 foot SPX Fastback. I have been reviewing these for some time now and every time I did a build I had it as a black boat with Sunset red as the accent color. My wife balked at that just from looking at the brochure and we...

    Ordered my Boat Today

    Well my wife and I bought a Bennington today. Went to the Louisville Boat Show yesterday and looked at Bennington's plus many other brands. Slept on it last night and did some more studying and went back to day to buy! I was of course leaning towards Bennington all along, but would have been...

    Engine Questions

    I will be in the market for a new (or used depending) Bennington in the next 6 months or so. If I buy new, I'm torn between the options of outboard motors. I was a little surprised that I can't find much on here or other web-forums about reviews/feedback of the different engine models. I've...

    Sticker Shock!

    Hello all. I've enjoyed reading thread in this forum very much. I don't have a Bennington pontoon, nor any boat for that matter now. I've been boating for many years and have owned a Cobalt runabout and a Sweetwater pontoon. Sold our place at the lake 3 years ago and we are missing it greatly...
