You will have to fold the tower. You need to losten the back straps, at tleast the bottom 3 if you want to leave the swim platform on. For the front, you will need a swing away tongue, iy you want to have a chance of closing it.

I added 4 foot sections of PVC to mine, and it fits under perfect. My tower is pretty tall. I believe the PVC was 1 1/4' diameter, and it fits inside the poles perfect. I have not put on the end pieces yet, but will be soon. My boat is a bit longer, and does stick out a little, but no big deal. Just trying to keep most of the sun and moisture off. I will take a pic and post it when I can.

Here in the UK, we have gone with the costco tents, and added some extra steal work. It is tight, and I remove the platform on my X2, but a good way of doing things.

The boat next door,is a mates SAN.

I added 2 1/2 ft pieces of emt to each leg (bolted on) and secured to eye bolts in the cement w/ cables/ropes. Boat fits almost perfect. During to rainy season I put the front on and the boat will stick out just a little. Tower stays up all the time. Its cheap protection from the weather.

The white panels that you can see in the picture are from and original costco tent. Lasted 2 winters and it was just cheaper, 130, to replace the whole lot rather than mess around. The frame was still sound, but the cover was showing its age and a little brittle. We are lucky with the wind as the yard is quite sheltered and the extra metal work helps to keep things solid.

As for a purchase on line, did struggle with that also, coundn't even find it listed on there sight. My be worth a phone call though.
