I just ordered a Monster tower for my 91 Malibu Sunsetter. Props to Monster - I ordered on Monday afternoon, and UPS says the box will be here today - I thought that was pretty dang good for UPS ground Atlanta to Dallas! Thanks for the fast ship!!

Anybody done an install on a similar yr Sunsetter? Did you have to reinforce the fiberglass (it looks pretty thick/strong). Where did you mount the legs? How much spread front to rear? Is it necessary to mount the front and rear legs the same distance apart, in width? I think I'd like to mount the front legs closer together (more narrow) than the rear legs - like on the flat little deck area in front of the windsheild. From the pics I've seen, it looks like most have mounted the front legs on the downward sloping portion of the boat, approximately the same width as the rear legs. Maybe visibility is the concern?

I got the black powder coated tower to match the black windshield frame. Plan to mount the rear legs just behind the clip attachment point for the low top, on top of the gunwhale. Maybe even a bit farther back, depending on how it folds back - I want it to fold up nicely. This would make the front to rear spread somewhere between 48 and 55".

Any ideas or insights appreciated! Tower goes on tomorrow morning (asuming no fiberglass buildup needed) and I plan to ride behind it tomorrow evening, or Saturday morning at the latest.
