Can't stand the wait. I ordered a new 2012 Bentley 240 Cruise SE (24'), 115 HP Merc 4 stroke, hydraulic steering, double bimini, underskinning, dual battery w/switch, and a Captain' chair for the console (the Admiral insisted). Only been a week since I ordered and two more weeks to go before delivery.
I've had a 20' bow rider for a while in the past, and my Father-in-law has a 44' Presidential trawler with twin diesels that I use to borrow a lot moored in League City, TX. Not new to boating, just new to Pontoons. I'm only four miles away from the St. John river and Lake Monroe in Florida.
I have twin girls who are almost three. That is the main reason for getting a 'toon. Safe and allows them to move around which will keep my wife and I out on the water longer.
Been reading a lot of the threads here and have learned a lot of tips already. Can't wait until I post four more times to get access to the NHB thread
