About a month ago the tower on my boat broke, and I think insurance is going to pick up the cost of a new one.
This is where I need you guys. There are a ton of tower manufacturers, but I'm not sure what are the pros/cons of the different companies.

JFree,

If you are looking into getting a SOLID replacement for your tower, I would suggest that you look into Monster Towers. Pretty much everyone on these boards will support these guys, because they have the most incredible customer support out there. They will literally overnight parts to you if anything goes wrong.

We had a Monster Tower on our old boat, and were very pleased. Besides the occasional tightening, and one freak incident involving a basketball goal, the tower was great. I would say for looks that it would be in my top 5, but there are probably a few "neater" looking towers, though I would say that the monster is easily the most functional. Being able to fold it down with one personal is huge plus. Also, the 3" piping is VERY good quality and looks stock.

You have a malibu wakesetter? I think if insurance covers the cost of any tower, I would go with a Titan or skylon just because that is who made towers for them on those boats. They fit the lines a lot better than the monster. But the monster is definately a good choice if they only cover $1500 of the cost.

OEM for sure. See if you can get a skylon chubby or whatever they are

If you have a bu the Titan 1 or 2 is a great choice. They are very rigid and quiet. I also like the simplicity of the design and with only one joint they collapse easily and there are few bars to block your line of sight. If you purchase it from wakeside.com I'm pretty sure the series 1 is $1200.

Thanks for the info guys...I guess I'll have to see what ins says. The worst part about it is that I need to get gel coat work done as well as get a new cover. I'm hoping ins. will cover that as well.
I noticed no one said anything about Pro flight...Are they not a good company to deal with?

Jeff,
Pro Flight is local to you located in Modesto and would be a good choice for your tower also. You could take a look at what they have to offer. Fiber Glass Fixations located in Modesto could also do your fiberglass repair and install the tower of your choice. Give Jason a call 569-0763 at Fiberglass Fixations.
Good luck,
Jim

Im with Chas on this one! Call Brian with http://www.wakeair.com/ . Every boat I have owned with a tower has been a Wakeair tower!! They make great stuff, and are great people. Check them out!

also agree with the wakeair recommendation. it's solid, different styles to choose, all the accessories you could want and great service. (price has gone up since we bought ours though.) brian is straight up with you, no high pressure sales pitch... their place is close to a place which does custom bimini tops as well.

boss towers. best accesories and they are located in rancho cordova. good turn around time and many different tower choices. bimini fits inside tower and all the accesories are solid billit.

I have been looking for a waketower and I had a lot of recommendations for the big air pylon http://www.bigairpylons.com/Tower.htm. I have not decided on what to buy yet but thanks for those who commented it really helps. One question I have is there a big difference in the towers that are priced at $900 and those priced at $2000?
