My wife and I have received lots of compliments on our Bennington. One comment came from the game warden; not sure if she was being serious or looking for contra band! The other comment came from a guy launching a 28ft brand X next to me. He said "Wow, Bennington...nice boat. Those are the Cadillacs of the pontoon Industry. " I think he was right. We just have an S series. Although we get a lot of stares on the water, I can only imagine what you R and Q series guys get for compliments. A few of my friends that have Tige', Nautiques and miscellaneous speed/wakeboard boats have mentioned how pontoon quality has come a long way. Although I am only 34, I would not have considered buying one 10 years ago!
