I know many of you have been following the "Tower Install" thread and here are the awesome results!! :woohoo:

Thumbs up to New Dimension Towers!!:headbang:

Sweet Huh!!

So yesterday I received the good backing plates from New Dimension and fiberglassed them into place and the tower is now complete!

I would recommend New Dimension Towers to any of you 100%

Many of you know that I did have a small problem with the install of my tower in that the backing plates were wrong. However, New Dimension sent me the new plates right away and i got them the first business day of this week.

I apologize to New Dimensions and my fellow TTers for making this seem like such a big problem in my other treads because it really wasn't!! All i had to do was wait for the new plates!

I would like to thank New Dimension for the kick butt tower and I would also like to thank all of you guys because you gave me a lot of good advise and tips!

If you ever thought about maybe getting a tower but were not sure which company to go with or whatever let me make that choice for you right Now!!

Definitely go with New Dimension Towers!!!


***For all you new guys who don't know what New Dimension Towers is or want to find out more about them check out their website at

Thanks Again To New Dimension Towers and All of You!!!

Looks good - what is the lettering on the side of the tower? "New Dimension" or does it actually say Zero Flex like the MasterCraft towers...just curious. I'm exploring options for my 197 come spring. Thanks -

Man, that tower sure did brighten up your boat and everything around it. That's neat!

i would recomend it for your 197 what year is it??

It's a 2005. Been looking at the MC mini-tower, and the new 2007 Zero Flex tower with machined up-rights. I think the New Dimension tower preserves the look of a mini (nice contoured mount - follows the lines of the windshield) yet doesn't look too bulky on the boat. At first I was leaning toward the mini, but I see the pull point will be much lower than going with a full size. What to do....what to do.... Have a few months to ponder this yet.

How long did it take to get your tower? Did they truck it right to your front door? And do you recall what freight costs were?

I too like the Zero-flex mini tower, but the price tag on it HURTS!! Mike (MYMC) is hooking me up with one in the near future but I think MasterCraft thinks they are made of gold with embedded diamonds!!! :shocked:

Well let me tell you New Dimension is having a 15% off sale till the end of Jan so I would jump on it now. If they have to make the tower I think they told me two weeks but they had mine in stock so it just depends. Also shipping costs depend we picked ours up so we didn't pay shipping , and it is also cheaper to ship to a commercial address so you might want to think about that. I think it was 125 to a commercial address in Florida and 60 dollars more for a residential. The closer to Tennessee the cheaper!

Good luck

Looks awesome! Thanks for posting all the extra pics (especially those showing the ND logo) - it was hard to tell what the writing all was on the earlier pics. This gives a good idea what the tower is all about, folded, up, light on, etc. Nice job!

I wonder if they would leave the NDT sticker off if I ordered one.... it's bound to peel over time....:confused:

Thanks much SDA!! Which ever tower I end up with, I'll be sure to post some pics as you did...stay tuned (maybe soon if I take advantage of the 15% off sale with ND).

Was wondering the same. It looks like just a vinyl graphic...I'd bet with a heat gun or hair dryer and a little patience, it would come off pretty easy too. ;) ;)

i like the sticker i think it finishs of the look. They also ask what color your boat is so the can match their logo to your boat. My boats red so red logo on the tower:D
