Default Looking for a tower

Hello there...

I'm sure there is a post somewhere addressing my question and if it's been answered 3769 times before please spare me the beatings.

I'm looking for a wakeboard tower for my 99 2100 SR.

Any advice, tips and suggestions are appreciated!

Cheers,
Mathieu

Wake towers are mostly a one size fits all as they have adjustable widths, and many have adjustable rear supports. I really like the towers that have lines that follow the side glass frame. If you need it to fold, make sure it folds low enough for your store space, and, doesn't put weight on your eisenglass.
I reinforced the mount points when I installed my tower using a couple of sheets of fiberglass and metal backing plate. Use a level. I was able to find a high point to hang the tower from while I got mount holes marked and drilled. Be careful when drilling gelcoat because it chips easily. I've heard that setting drill in reverse works well, but I covered the drill points with tape and used a sharp bit.

I have the Roswell 2 tower and really like it. (I have the same boat).

Make sure whoever is installing it reinforces it properly or you will end up with spider cracks all over your gell coat, Iíve seen it a lot with aftermarket towers. Even mine has some due to how the original owner had it installed when the boat was new.
