Well, I am starting to consider installing a tower on my boat. I have a 1989 2001 Ski Nautique and I am mulling over the advantages to having a tower vs. the pole.

I am pondering getting a collapsible tower for better storage options.

So, what suggetions does anyone have? And, if anyone has comments about stress cracks or additional measures for the support of the tower stress, let me know.

As always, thank you for your input

Titan is starting to make some noise in the Correct Craft community as a vendor partner. If you want to add accessories to your tower, no question the Titan goods are superior. Their bimini and tower racks are top notch. You'll pay for the quality, but you bought a Nautique for a reason.

New Dimension Towers also worth a look as a traditional "OEM" style tower. www.newdimensiontowers.com

Joshua - thanks for the link and directions. I saw boats very similar and heck, if Tommer and Levi have a monster tower, then who am I to second guess their genius

I looked at the Titan Tower as well and it sounds absurd, but I was totally turned off by their website. I have no idea how the tower will mount on my type of boat, what the cost is, how the tower looks on my type of boat, if it can work with my existing bimini, what colors (if any), etc. If anyone knows someone at Titan, tell them to get rid of the high-tech imagery and give the consumer the straight talk. I understand the necessity to press the metalurgy involved; however, it would be nice to see the finished product in use.

Monster has my vote. I like the construction, the way it mounts, the way collapses down, and that it looks like it can fit with my existing bimini...thank you all for the recommendation.

And, Tommer or Levi - if you are reading this, let me know about your experience with the Monster and I may pick your enormous brains about the installation requirements.

Thanks again

how are you going to preserve all the stickers?

louise, good pic. i have installed a few of them and it is a piece of cake. also monster has got their act together w/ their website... very informative and the customer install tab is a huge seller.. also the price is kickass.. post up some pics once installed... my only recommendation for your install is to maybe glass in some plywood for extra support up front, especially if you plan on keeping the boat..

That was my concern - the additional support needed for the torque of the tower. It is one thing to have a boat made with that "stress" in mind, it is another to force tension on the hull that was not in the boat's original design.

Tim - funny you should ask? I just removed all the stickers tonight. Going for the clean look now. Hope all is well your way...

Louise, you don't really need to reinforce the deck on a SN2001. Most agree that the glass is plenty thick. Check out the2001.com and post some pics.
