Re: Pull you fenders in!!

On my lake, it seems like more pontooners leave their fenders hanging than other types of boaters. It drives me crazy. To me it's a rookie mistake and looks really tacky. The only thing worse is leaving the boarding ladder down while cruising! So for those of you who disagree with me and leave your...

Re: New to Board

I just traded my 11-year-old Sun Tracker for a 2019 Bennington 21SL tritoon with a 150 Yamaha.

It will run 40 mph at WOT, and cruises very nicely at 20-25 mph.

Re: Got a new boat yesterday

I too am a Bennington/150 hp owner. They get a little exciting when you hit 30 plus mph and the nose raises into the wind. Most passengers don't care to run over 40 mph anyway. Congratulations. When the salesman and I went for the test drive, I got 40mph at WOT. I had forgotten how fast that is on ...

Got a new boat yesterday

My wife and I traded our 11-year-old pontoon for a brand new one, today. We had a 2007 Suntracker Party Barge 22 Regency w/ a Mercury Big Foot 60HP outboard. We are now the proud owners of a 2019 Bennington - 21SL w/ a Yamaha 150HP outboard. The Bennington has the Sport Performance System w/ 3 logs,...
