I saw this on Ebay. Not sure if anyone else saw it but starting bid is $10 says he bought it for $500. Can you even find one for $500?

That is also the 06 Model. It probably 'fell' off of a truck during shipping and he ended up with it. I want to say that Malibu lists the blade tower as a 5k$ option, but don't quote me on that.

Anyway, feels fishy to me

I can definitely picture some idiot scumbag sneaking up in the middle of the night and snatching the whole $5,000 tower, just to get the $125 worth of 6x9s inside of it.

I'd like to see more detailed pictures of the mount points.

The guy obviously has no idea what he is has. Just look at the description. Anyone looking for a tower is never going to find this item. It is also the first thing he has sold on ebay, all his feedback is from stuff he has purchased. If I lived close to him, I would buy it on the spot. Or it is a huge scam. Keep it quiet and make yourself some cash!!!!!!!! Buy it and sell it!!

Better yet, find out his city/location and ask the local 'Bu dealer if he is missing a 06 black/blue blade tower. Turn his arse in.

I would never but anything on EBAY that I can't pay with Paypal. He wants MO or Cashiers check. I have been burned before. Sounds too good, SCAM IMO.

Why would he buy if "I do not to much about this item"?
Old    Chris White (ccwhite)      Join Date: Jul 2004       09-20-2005, 1:05 PM Reply   
He says the item is in Liberty, MO. Anybody have an idea about what the local BU dealer?

If this guy is doing a scam, notice how he has his face in one of the pictures :-)

I am in St. Louis Missouri.

The only dealer I know of is Liberty MO.

If its not stolen, I should buy it and hold it for a Bu owner that needs one.

I will email Dans boats and see what they say.

Uhh...sketchy. There isn't even a tow point mounted on the top.

This tower is broken. You can see where the rear tow hoop was connected and is broken off (little white parts on each side of the tower near the 6x9 holes). The guy probably got it at an auction of some sort and doesn't even know the thing is broken.

He should just mount it to the boat that he is selling.

I asked him where he got it. His response....

"I got this tower from auction in Kansas City. I have the bill of sale with me."

I emailed him asking how far apart the mount points were (how wide the tower is) and he responded "7.5 inches."

Hmmm, heheh. Maybe it's for an RC Malibu? :-)

He should put that tower on the 88' sea swirl he's also trying to sell and then he could make his $500 back.

i think the spool mounts on top of the blade towers, and they don't have a rear hoop.

What do you mean you're going to pass? You won the auction, you going to stiff the guy?
