    Default Which tower do I choose?

    Powder coated would probably be better but could run you some extra cash. I'm not really a clean freak but I didn't have any issues with my chrome version.

    BTW, in case you didn't already realize it, the tower could create some issues with your Bimini.

    Ya I have thought of that, I'm going have to see where the placement ends up. Just going to get the tower on then figure out the Bimini.

    I'm not a clean freak by any means, but mine had water spots and stains. I usually pressure wash a few times a season and occasionally wipe things down.

    It's probably a maintainace thing, it took a lot of elbow grease to restore the shin after a season. Keeping Chrome looking nice takes way to much time for me, I'd rather be boating than polishing or cleaning..


    I was glad to see it go.. I was always tightening things, with a lot of use it flexes and loosens over time, even with red locktight.

    Watch the install videos/pics they have, explains everything, I used some extra wood and 5200 for extra backing/support. It's worth the effort if you're going to wakeboard..

    And yes those are double ds.. Lol

    The one you have listed is polished aluminum so that's good, if you plan on folding it down they have quick handle release bolts, they're extra..

    Well thank you all for the input, I just pulled the trigger on this http://www.bigairwaketowers.com/towers/vapor/ blacked out. They were awesome to deal with on the phone, gave me free shipping which saved me $130. Said it should be at my front door Tuesday/Wednesday at the latest. Pretty excited to get it up and get on the water. Thanks again for all the input, it will or has come in handy.

    I didn't pull tubes with it, were just advised not to, a lot of weight pulling on the tower.

    Ya that's what they told me. She said that the tower would hold up but it puts a ton a stress on the boat. I'm cool with that

    Cool, you won't be disappointed with that decision, but just be aware that it will lead to other problems (if it hasn't already)......next you will want one or more board racks, speakers, a mirror arm hanging from the tower, etc, etc, etc!!!

    Ya I ended up getting the racks and speakers with it. I was going to wait but the combo price was to good haha. I'm sure that the speakers will lay for a couple seasons before I decide to upgrade.
