not sure where I saw it but I saw a centurion with a tower, then on the tower was 3 more bars like a tripod onto of the tower with another rop tie up on top of that. Probably added 5 feet to the tower. Does anyone know where to get one of these or do you think it was personally made. If I find the pic ill post it

You should be able to jump at least 5-6' higher with that thing. That is way too short, I say raise that up another 15-20' and then we're talking. You'd have to hire a helicopter just to attach your rope.
Sarcasm turned off now!

Did you ever see the tower extension with the sail in it? It was 10 or 15ft higher. Dumb, but higher.

The boat is gonna sway too much when you cut out, in turn washing out the wake- completely undesireable. Towers and poles are typically at their most effective height; tall enough for more air and not too tall to sway the boat. Ten Foot Pole makes pylons, and their original designs actually were ten feet high, but they shortened them up when they realized how destructive it was to the wake.

At least that thing with the sail would counter the force of cutting out and not sway the boat.

Basically, I hope this is just a joke... and that pic doesn't look functional- the extension would just snap off (unless i'm missing something in the pic)
