Brilliant. Looks seamless and great with the NG OBV hull. I have to admit I was not a fan of these style towers but then I rode in a $120k Malibu the other day. It's amazing how unobstructed the driver's view is. And the lines are very clean. I like 'em now.

looks great! I too was not so much a fan of that style tower untill going for a ride in that Malibu.

Bet that is the same Outback V that I posted a pic of that was towerless a couple months back

I agree, looks great. Did that person order the boat without a tower, or did they have to repair the fiberglass where the tower was originally mounted?

The cheapo Chinese towers that SC is using on the Outbacks now look like absolute crap, that's a huge improvement!

I like the look for sure - I'm up in the air though as to blocking the entrance into the boat on the sides where it is mounted. On a smaller hull like the OBV it's right smack dab in the middle. But they have to be mounted far enough back so that when they drop they'll clear the windshield.

On a 23-24ft boat me thinks it would be less of an issue.

You remember what they said Newty? I kinda recall mentioning it came with no tower and they put that one on to show a different option.

nice- these towers are growing on me. especially like the fact that this one doesn't have the solid beam on the side.... looks much better to me

why don't they put the supra style towers on the Moomba as an upgrade instead of using the malibu tower?

Not only that, but if you look at it from the front the front legs bow out really weird. I didn't notice it until I saw the 2 side by side, now I can't stop seeing it!

wow that tower looks totally sick! the only thing i dont like about the forward swooping towers is that there is not a Z5 for them!
