|If I can convince the wife and brother to get a tower, what's the best way to go about it? We own a '99 Sunsetter VLX. |
It looks like most of the manufacturer's sell online, but where would I take it to install?
Local boat retailers say they can get "any tower" I want, but I'm guessing that's for people buying a boat. It seems like they would not want to invest the time/labor to order a tower and make a couple hundred bucks for the install.
And with boat show season coming up, there's another avenue.
Let me know what's worked for you when you've added a tower. Thanks.
|I pulled our tower off, had the holes filled and then reinstalled it. Mounting had been done at a dealer, and they had done a really poor job. |
If schedule hadn't been an issue, it would've been a cake walk, and mounting our tower is a little more involved than many aftermarket ones are today.
After working at a dealership a few years ago, and then seeing what another dealer had done to my tower, I chose to do it myself. I'm sure you could get some great phone and email support from whatever tower mfr you choose.

|Most of the tower mfg'rs have pretty detailed instructions for the Do-it-yourselfer and most boat dealers / repair center will install a tower for you. |
My only recommendatin is dont buy a tower, then take it to a dealer that is also a dealer for that tower and expect them to be excited about installing it for you.
