I was at a Mercury/Mercruiser Product Seminar a couple of weeks ago, and they are introducing a new sterndrive system for pontoon/deckboats that fits entirely flush under the floor...like 14" total height. They also said that pontoon boats were one of the highest growth segments in the industry.

I got a 22 bennington w/ a 115 merc. Love it. Used it more than my 36 Outlaw last year. It only does about 35 but it tows my kids on their wakeboards great. Get a 25 tri toon with the lifting stakes and a 200. It will do 50 and actually come on plane.

My family owns Premier PowerSports in Rogers, AR., and Oklahoma City. They're looking to move all the remaining
06's in inventory, they have a few Bennington's left, and quite a few runabouts. You can pick them up at or below cost, they're tired of paying the interest on them.

Look at a Crest with lifting stakes. A friend has a 22 -25 footer with a 150 that does 45mph. The one with the lifting stakes also has thicker metal on the toons.

Oh man my wife has been on me for years to get one. I pray she doesn't read this post. If it's good enought for WDS i'll have no ammunition left. Maybe a package deal, one playcraft and one MTi

Could you please tell me what prop you are using? I have the same setup, but I am only going 46mph! The boat and Verado were rigged at the factory.
