    Rhino Boat Lift

    Hi, I am thinking of purchasing a boat lift and the boat dock manufacture is recommending a Rhino Lift L-Arm system from Rhino Marine Systems. Just checking if anyone has one or knowledge of this product? My research so far is only on their Web sight and looking at one already installed on the...

    Trolling Motor

    I forgot to add I think that most 12v only have around max 55lbs thrust. 24v motors have 70lbs+ thrust which makes a world of difference in efficient maneuverability in only a light winds on a tritoon. I use my boat primarily for fishing...

    Trolling Motor

    Over the years I have both 12v and 24v on both pontoon/tritoon. The last two trolling motors have been 24v. I currently have a MinnKota Powerdrive iPilot 24V 60" shaft and would highly recommend a 24V on a tritoon. Takes a little more to move a tritoon around efficiently especially in some wind...

    Fishing in Destin Fl in Chotawhatchee Bay

    All Thanks for your inputs. We want to spend several days fishing and on the water so renting is like Tin Diesel states, even one day is expensive let alone all week. From what I can tell beaching the boat at some of the nice beach areas is also possible. I found a 3 Bedroom condo with a boat...

    Fishing in Destin Fl in Chotawhatchee Bay

    Hi, I am thinking of towing my Bennington to Destin Fl. and doing some fishing cruzing in the Choctawhatchee Bay the last week of April. I have never been in the area. Is using a 22' tritoon in the Bay OK? Is the water there more like a lake in term of the waves? Any suggestions on places to...

    Engine Hours

    WOW Thanks for all your replies. I realized that I only mentioned my previous boat and not my new Bennington. I took delivery in Sept 2018 and now have 70 hours on her. I use my boat a lot for fishing so for sure I average probably 4-6 hours on-board for every hour engine run time. It is always...

    Engine Hours

    I am just curious on how many engine hours are you guys racking up. I had a 2005 Yamaha 90 4 stroke on my previous pontoon I had for 12 years before my 2018 Bennington and I think I had well over a thousand hours on it in that amount of time and is still running strong, because I sold it to a...

    Trolling motors and set up?

    I also have the 60" shaft but the 54" would work fine I think. The 60" does allow you to put the motor well below the water line to eliminate any prop cavitation and still have a good visual on the head to keep track of the direction it is pointing.

    Trolling motors and set up?

    I have the Minn Kota Power Drive 70# iPilot 24V. I would recommend the 70 over the 55 with 12V. I have had both and as previously mentioned with a moderate wind you will not be able to hold very well with the 55. I like the 70#/24V much better. See my pics for how I mounted mine, slightly off...
