Nice!!!! Can the Gate Glide and Console Pocket be added to a 2021 SX21 through the dealer? I would like to add both of those to mine.

Not to pat myself on the back but my custom build with the dinette table on the swingback was supposedly the first ever to do it (according to engineering). That would be cool if mine was the inspiration to that new option!

I would almost bet real money that yours was the inspiration for it!

I had a couple similar thoughts myself. I would think so In both cases. Simple screw in items.

I even bet that locked glove box can be added at dealer to older models. Shouldn’t involve more than cutting the correct size hole with a template through the helm, and installing it.

I think what's unique about the Bennington owners community (and the forum members in particular) is that there are some real passionate and discerning enthusiasts who care about the details. If they aren't already doing it Bennington/Polaris could really benefit by leveraging community feedback to make a more functional and competitive boat. Not to say we are more qualified than their designers but we are a diverse group of product testers in essence and have a wealth of knowledge. I'm sure most folks here would be happy to share their ideas!

We were actually interested in the Swingback model initially. But the entertainment model was/is more practical for us. We have a comfortable place to eat our meals and play cards/games with whoever we are hanging out with. We actually had to choose between the two. You just put them together! Plus you ordered your boat right?!?

Correct, custom order.

It all started because I couldn't get my "dream boat" (24' Yellowfin CC) given my kids are still a little young, so I focused on pontoons. Looked at the Angler Qwest stuff initially since most of my use was fishing related, but it did not seem as well-built or thought out as Bennington or Manitou. Manitou then was eliminated due to dealer network being sparse and having less options. Bennington checked every box!

I tried to cram all my needs into the custom build - swingback for the wife and kids, entertainment table for guests and more open bow for fishing/trolling motor. For the most part it turned out well, and if I were to do it over I'd only make a few tweaks. Was really a pleasure working with the dealer and design team to make it all happen.
