I have 2016 Bennington and I have replaced 6 seats due to separation at the center seam. I have talked to 2 dealers & nobody has been able to get me a cause & more importantly a permanent solution. Any thoughts?
If that were my boat it'd be because the kids are stepping all over the seats and treating it like a trampoline.
Not sure if that's simtex or other material but I would think like anything else UV + extreme temps + lots of use = potential for tearing. I hope these have been replaced under warranty and perhaps Bennington can advise additional care tips to prevent future tears.
Certainly seems to be a head scratcher but having had to replace six seats, it’d be my guess that it’s a bad batch of vinyl. I’ve got a 2016 as well with none of those issues. I’d be pretty confident that the new seats will be just fine.
