I will soon receive my Skylon X-Treme Swoop Tower. I plan to install the tower on my 2006 Sea Ray 185. I have read many tips on how to install it – and that is not my primary question as I have read lots of those threads / posts already. My question is “Where do I install the Tower Mounts (4)?” What are my considerations?

1- I am concerned about my vision?

2- I heard that you do not want to mount it too far back??? What are the guidelines?

3- Is it better to place the mounts in an upright position if possible? (not on the sides) - Just forward of the windshield there is an area that is flat (a step) seems like a good spot to mount it (the front mounts)

4- Is it ok to have the front mounted upright and the rear on the sides? Can the front mounts be closer together than the rear????

5- What else should I consider???.

I will apologize ahead of time for the lack of depth; mounting your bases on the top of your gunnels will give you the most strength. Make sure the bases and under plates are mounted FLUSH!
