    New CARB Proposals Threaten Future of Outboard Engines

    On a similar note: "Suzuki Outboards moves forward with its innovative plan to install filters on their engines that would remove microplastics from the water. (Microplastics are currently one of the biggest long-term threats to the marine ecosystem) passively, simply as the engine was running...

    New CARB Proposals Threaten Future of Outboard Engines

    It's pretty hard to separate the pepper from the fly poop on this one as these "allegations" may or may not be true. There are a lot of winners and losers to come in the transition from predominately ICE-powered vehicles (lands, air, water) and it's hard to know the accuracy of some of these...

    I see why summer is the week of July 4 in Northern MI

    In the rare event I make them myself, I cheat and use the pre-made pie crusts from the store. Saves a bunch of time. The place in Cadillac is Mr. Foisies. We buy them by the dozen and keep them in the freezer. They are OK, but not as good as those made by actual Yoopers. For me, if there's not a...

    Kilwin's locations are franchised and can be found almost any place where tourists visit. We have one in my town. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilwins

    In the UP, they call July 15th - 31st "Two bad weeks of ice fishing." ;-)

    Factory MSRP

    I am posting this link, not to sell a boat or promote a specific dealership, but to show that some dealerships do indeed show a MSRP. YMMV. https://www.spicersboatcity.com/default.asp?page=xallinventory&make=bennington#page=xallinventory&make=bennington

    I see why summer is the week of July 4 in Northern MI

    You probably came within 7 miles of me when you passed thru the stoplight in Benzonia on US 31. We are pretty lucky if we can start boating by Memorial Day weekend in these parts. My Benny is still in storage.

    Pictures of Bennington Manufacturing / Help Wanted

    When I was last at the factory, that part of the yard was indeed the land of mis-fit boats. There was a dozen or so boats there, all suffering from an affliction (or more). I would guess they are waiting to get scrapped.

    New 2021 SX21

    Great choice. We have the same boat and chose that interior layout because the space to store/use port-a-potty is a high priority for my crew. With a 150, mine's a little hot rod. Top end is 43 with just me and the top stowed.

    Bennington prices?

    What I think is missing from this conversation is the acknowledgement that Bennington pontoon boats are a premium brand and thus, command a premium price. If someone wants to enter the boating market for less, it's easy. There are lots of companies selling boats in the $30K - $35K range. If you...

    Bennington prices?

    Considering how I paid $10K for my first house back in 1980, I've long blown past that point! ;-)

    Bennington Production Delays

    Holy hijack, Batman (I'm a guilty party, too). If y'all want a real estate thread, start one. If y'all want a dog thread, start one. Please leave this one to the original topic.

    Bennington Production Delays

    But all this rapid appreciation in sales prices just kills the tax assessment on neighboring properties. At least in Michigan it does.

    Bennington Production Delays

    Around here (small, quaint town in Northern Michigan on Lake Michigan) that seems to be 30-40% higher than last year.

    Isn't every "asking" price a "price opinion?" Some are just more informed than others.

    Bennington Expands To New Facilities Adding Elkhart Jobs (Press Release)

    Best of luck in this next big step, BM. I read once that the county in which Elkhart is located posts some of the lowest unemployment rates in the entire country. Hopefully, you'll get lots of motivated and talented applicants.
