    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    Haha we made that mistake… figured we would sell in the fall and have a new boat for spring.. oops!! Bright side is we did sell our old boat for more than we paid for it after owning it for 5 years.

    Bennington. I called them and they connected me to their regional liaison. The Bennington liaison has been awesome for me.

    Lead time on special order

    just got word my mid feb order is scheduled to be built July 26th. Sadly, this takes into account their anticipated ramped up schedule. It could be a little sooner but it can also be later. They basically said that build date is close to the best case scenario. It all depends on materials...

    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    update that may help others.... Ordered mid Feb...just got email from Bennington rep that my boat is scheduled to be build 7/26 for a mid august delivery. The build dates vary because each dealer has slots. Some people may get boat sooner if their dealer has more build slots. Thanks

    How to know if ordered boat has gone into production

    Called Bennington. Ordered in early February. Was told by dealer end of may, beginning of June receiving. Bennington doesn’t have a build date yet so they now estimate August at the earliest. Ugh, going to be a long summer. Hahah From bennington ~~~~ “Congrats on your purchase! I checked on...

    Dual Battery Setup/Battery Switches??

    Thanks, i will search for more threads. So if you have bat1 selected and motor running, bat2 is “cut off” and won’t charge. That is an issue for me! I can easily fix by installing that device I posted previously but sucks it could affect warranty. You may want to look into that device I...

    Dual Battery Setup/Battery Switches??

    Thanks Jeff, I guess that is not terrible as we can just use Bat 1 and then switching to Bat 2 if needed. Thanks!

    Dual Battery Setup/Battery Switches??

    I would have thought the factory dual set up would wire one battery to the motor and the other for “everything else”. Is that not how it is done? I wired our old boat like that. They were 2 independent systems when motor was off. When motor was running, it would charge both. There was a switch...

    New Benningtone owner question...

    I installed RGBW LED Strip lights on the side of our old pontoon and shortly after, everyone on the lake started getting them. If you are relatively handy with electrical and zip ties, its really simple AND CHEAP. I think IP67 lights and controller with connectors can be had for around $100...

    Boat order decisions...This or That!!

    Every one her has been super helpful in their experiences. It’s impossible to get any dealer demos due to lack of boats. When we started looking, a few dealers laughed when I asked what used boats were in stock. The ones I did find were so expensive.. we just decided to pull trigger on new and...

    Center pontoon storage

    I like that! I'll have to look into this one when i get the boat and can measure. Not a fan of the railing but I guess i dont have to install that? I will be building a removable undermount trolling motor mount as well so those will have to play together. i just need this but...

    Center pontoon storage

    awesome photos! Did you happen to measure the opening? You mentioned 12” wide. Did you measure the length? I’m looking at getting some sort of folding step stool/ladder for when we beach. I’ll look at a folding ladder off the front eventually but not sure what will fit on a tritoon. Thanks!

    Boat order decisions...This or That!!

    Intersting... i know from reading your other posts, you do not like the express. I was originally concerned with squat with express/150... I could live with 30s...considering we are coming from a boat that did 15-16 MAX... You dont have a 150, but what sort of increase in speed would that...

    Boat order decisions...This or That!!
