Once again major kudos to Monster for the quick ship - ordered Monday afternoon, and the box rolled to my door Thrusday. Tower was on the boat before dark Thursday night and I rode 4 sessions on the morning of the Fourth before the lake really got too crowded.
Here are a few pics of the tower on the boat with the top down and up. I haven't tried it with my bimini yet... http://members.tccoa.com/texastbird/Monster/MVC-517X.jpg http://members.tccoa.com/texastbird/Monster/MVC-526X.jpg http://members.tccoa.com/texastbird/Monster/MVC-536X.jpg
The tower looks great on the boat IMHO. Went together pretty smoothly. It got pulled sort of askew after my second set, but of course I brought the tools with me and after readjusting it and tightening the fasteners, it was good to go.
Directions for mounting the tower were okay. I really appreciated Monster bothering to include a little bag of hardware marked spare parts! Came in handy
I'm pretty pleased with the way the installation came out overall. The rear arms mounted on the horizantal gunwhale, which should be very strong and support the load really well. I think the black powerder coated tower looks great with he black windshield frame. Guess now I need a rack for my boards and trick ski...
