    Started this year with a different.....

    Towing machine... Been pulling mine with the 2000 F-250 with the 7.3 PSD. Upgraded recently to the 2017 F-250 6.7 PSD. I’m loving the upgrade. BEFORE... AFTER...

    First time out this year.....

    Launched for the first time this year. Beautiful day. Just a tad chilly for cruising over 20 or so, but anchored and took a nap while basting in the sun. Did have one problem on my 2018 Benny. The stereo head was messed up. I sent this pic to my dealer, who said he would email Bennington to...

    Loading a Benny tri-toon on trailer

    Since there have been a number of new owners asking how to load the boat on a trailer, I got my wife to video me this evening. I’ve described the way I do it, but this will put the words into motion. I back my trailer in until the fenders just go below the surface, or at least close to that...

    First time out this year.

    First trip out wasn’t so good. Been sitting in the drive on the trailer all winter. Launched and idled out the channel. Opened it up and got 30 MPH at 5800 RPM. Normal top speed last year was 38 MPH at 5800RPM. Forgot to mention that the dreaded fuel gauge that gave me trouble from day one...

    Fun in Chattanooga, TN.

    We’ve spent some time with my little brother and his family. We drug our Benny up there to make some memories. Will post more pics as I get them in. I finally experienced going through a lock at the dam near Chat. And some pics as we went under the iconic bridges of the city as well as the...

    I love to pull up to restaurants in the Benny.

    The first is at Table Rock Lake in Branson, MO. The second is a new restaurant on our reservoir and the third is at the new restaurant from the second pic about two weeks after they finished a great looking breaker style dock system. What pics can you share looking out from the restaurant?

    Technical? Maybe....

    I just added these so I can redo this. Multiple uses. First of all, they are SS. They are very stout so they will hold a flag or two, hold my extension porch screen horizontal bar, and of course, hold some fish catchers if I choose to do that. I was struggling to make the horizontal...

    Great time at Table Rock Lake.

    We made it to TRL. Beautiful lake, and on the first day out, I’ve already lost another anchor. :D It got tangled on the rock below. Now, does everyone understand why I don’t buy those $100-200 anchors? :) Going to put in the river below the Spillway, today, and cruise along Branson. The...

    If you do some add-ons yourself...

    The rope (string) broke that tightens the cover to my outboard. I went to Harbor Freight to see if they had something I could use to pull new cord through. I don’t buy everyday kind of tools there, but things like this that are used every blue moon, yessir, I’ll let them take my money. I...

    Problems at home.

    We’ve been experiencing trouble with our home reservoir. In one large area of the reservoir called Pelahatchie bay, we had a rash of giant salvinia starting to take over. If you don’t know what this is, you’re probably better off since it most likely wouldn’t have invaded your waterways. It’s...

    Guardian Angels we’re watching over us.

    I had just picked up my wife from the airport last Thursday, April 11. About 8:30 pm, heading back home on a 6 lane road, we were coming to an intersection with cruise control set on 55 mph (speed limit). A truck load of 16 y/o kids turned in front of us, leaving us no where to go but into his...

    Windows could use a little bit of washing.

    Merry Christmas to the Bennington family.

    I wish for all your dreams to be reality. Hoping you can reflect back on 2018, and count many blessings. Wishing each of you an even better 2019.

    Just wanted to share with my Benny friends...

    I haven’t been on the forum much in the last couple of weeks. Two weeks ago, today, my mom and uncle rushed my dad (my hero) to the emergency room. He is a lifelong asthmatic, emphysema, and has COPD. When I got to the hospital on Saturday afternoon, they had already admitted him to ICU...

    Finally had a guinea pig trying my tube.

    Took the little nephew out this weekend.

    Paying it forward...

    Can’t see the other boat very well, but we towed a fellow boater in after the fireworks show last night. They had run out of gas. We know what that feels like, so we were very glad to help.

    Pensacola Trip

    Glad we brought the moring cover today, on our 100 mile excursion from Pensacola to Destin’s Crab Island and back. Got caught in a storm on the way back, and rode it out on a sand bar near Ft. Walton Beach. 2hrs 40 mins one way. Stayed at a steady 4000RPM 24MPH. It was 49 miles by boat. We had...
