Starting to look at tower accessories and need to know what type of tower I have so I can get the clamp diamater. Can anyone help?

Why don't you just measure it....

I don't have a good tool to do that with. Using a regular tape measure is too hard to tell within an 1/8" what it really is. I figured with all the boat knowledge here that someone would probably know off the top of the head what it is.

Then measure the diameter and back calculate it with a ribbon tape measure...

Step 1: Cut a piece of string
Step 2: Wrap string around tower
Step 3: Measure string
Step 4: Do basic math

Here is a chart based on the circumference

looks like 1 7/8 - 2 to me. Looks like a ProFlight Swoop but the top is different. Maybe a Skylon? ProFlight (non-chubby) are 1 7/8 and the Skylons are 2.

That looks like a ProFlight tower to me. Don't bother trying to contact them though, they're out of business.

It's a 2006 Centurion Elite V

Proflight Swoop has different feet than this one. Round vs Diamond shaped. The proflight also has the knob to fold the tower on the inside, not the outside.

Thanks for the measuring suggestions, I'll give it a shot. Would still be nice to know what tower it is though.

Thanks

Tom you might be wrong on that one. The proflight did come with diamond feet and the knob on the outside.

Looks like it might be an OEM XTP tower

hmmm, the green one is actually the closest fit because the others have oval cross bars.

OK, I just found the original invoice for when the boat was purchased

"Air Warrior with Swoop Tower - STD"

I'll see if I can find the deal I got. Got a set of the kicker 6500.2's for like 240 shipped. Throw 2 sets of cans in and your $ on your tower speakers. I would go crazy w/o board racks though. I snapped a bungie with a buffer and having a hard enough time with just 1 rack

yeah, the board racks are the number 1 need at the moment. I can do without the stereo, but the boards are taking up too much space around the boat. My wife is antsy for a better spot to store her towels LOL

Looks like it's indeed an XTP Swoop tower.

Thanks guys

Sorry Tom, saw the post a little late. It is for sure an 1/7/8. Depending on if the boat came from west coast or east coast will give you the Tower MFG. West coast used Proflight and East Coast switched to XTP if I recall, but had a pretty identical look and measurements.

Not sure what you are looking at rack wise, but I had 4 sets of racks on mine as I towed a ton of people back then and the DIYwake.com adjustable racks fit between those high up cross members perfect;y and rarely interfere with a docking situation. They are rock solid, never spin and are dirt cheap. When the rubber wears out you just buy the replacement pre cut strips. Otherwise you choices are endless on racks

Yeah I'm thinking about doing those cheap easy racks and then putting the surf board overhead on the tower.

Boat was purchased in NC so I assume it was built out here too.

Yup def not proflight then, but regardless you have the 1 7/8 size correct. Hope you're enjoying the new ride. Looks like you about to have some fun making it yours.

Like i said they are rock solid and bombproof. I have owned over 5 sets and all re still in use. 2 sets of those going on year 6
