Forum Member Spotlight

Published in the July 2012 Issue July 2012 Ask The Expert

Our forums are a great place to meet new people who enjoy the same passion that you do. We all know that pontoon and deck boat lovers are a special breed! If you aren't a forum member, check it out by going to and clicking on the forum link on the top left of the home page.

We are proud to introduce bigkahuna, aka Daril Godinez. After 28 years on the force, Daril is recently retired from the Metro Transit Police in Washington D.C.

1. What kind of boat do you currently own?

My wife Diane and I have a 2004 Bennington 2275 RL I/O triple pontoon. It has a 4.3L V6 MPI (220hp). It's off-white and burgundy.

2. What is your favorite thing about it?

Our favorite thing is that it has plenty of room and comfortable seats! Our old bow rider would comfortably sit only about 6 people. Another favorite thing is that it has plenty of power to pull water skiers/wake boarders.

3. A fun/exciting boating memory?

There are so many fun and exciting memories, but we hope to make new ones at the PDB forum get together this September at Lake Anna, in Virginia.

4. The best thing about being a forum member?

The best thing is being able to connect with other members across the country. If I have a problem, a solution to a problem or I want to throw my two cents in about a topic, I can use the forum. I can get the perspective of another member in a different part of the U.S.

Again, thanks Daril for being willing to go first and show how fun this is going to be.
