I will be taking delivery of a new to me Benny (2018 R23), my dock isn’t in the water yet How can I store this for a week or so on my driveway (no trailer). Cinder blocks under the pontoons, or can it sit direct on the concrete? Other alternatives?

Foam blocks or wood blocks placed at weld points points on logs, nose, rear cap, center.

Side note if you use wood blocks to avoid treated lumber - the chemicals can react with your aluminum toons.

The new to us Benny. 2018 R23 Swing back with 90 hours in a 115 hp Yamaha. Well it was delivered to my driveway today. Cleaned it went through the manual and struggled with the mooring cover but Semperfi’s video was extremely helpful. Waiting for the dock to be installed then we will get it into the water.
Learned a lot of great info here.

Your Tractor Supply or Rural King should have the big foam blocks from trailer deliveries unless the Texas freeze screwed that up also.

Nice!! Glad the video helped. I can pop mine quicker than with snaps, and don’t have to worry about tearing it.
