Thanks guys, that is a harsh start on my Monday! And I was so happy with the way it cleaned up too :) It really is a nice older boat and I think someone will enjoy it even if it is not up to everyone's standards.

Take the tower off and it would be a sharp boat, even with a couple patches on each side of the hull. But then again, I hate all towers - think they're ugly - especially that one. :noface:

I'd buy it if I was looking and the price was right. And then sell the tower on ebay.

Mig,
You have to admit that is not a normal tower install. I've never seen any type of tower (including fishing boats) bolted on though the side of the hull. I wonder if it has enough support being mounted through the side like that???

That is the new "Suction Cup" mount! No damage to the boat at all! You do need to lick it before you stick'em on though! Every once in awhile it just pops off and hits you in the head but other than that it works fine! If I had to I would have waited, no offense. Beautiful boat however!:D

The boat apparently had a Safety-T-Top on it once by the looks of the black patches on the deck both sides behind the windshield frames.
And, what are the gadgets mounted both sides where the grabrails once were, cargo hooks?

so im confused, did mig just buy the boat or is he selling the boat???
is that a fish finder on the dash? what da heII was the person thinking that installed the tower. only explanation i can think is that whoever did that bought the tower used cheap but it didnt fit the boat any other way.

I keep looking at zoomed in pics of this boat and am wondering if this is a commercially built tower or homemade, by the looks of the exposed bolts and nuts on the tower legs and braces. I am so confused!

Not really. I'd ski behind anything that will track straight and steady through the course and have a teeny wake. Even if it was made by Bayliner.

Wow, a lot of posts over my boat! Can't answer all the questions. The tower has "BigAir" stickers so I'm sure it is commercially built - they have a website. I used the boat twice with it when we first purchased it and took it off, hung it in the shop - didn't want to encourage wakeboarding among my younger drivers. Yes some of the pins are replaced with bolts, the tower setup can use some tlc from someone who cares about boarding. That was our first tournament boat - I learned to ski a course late summer 2005 and got addicted. I'm 6'3" and didn't bump my head on it so never even noticed there was a problem with the install, but defitely made it wider coming into the shorestation in rough water. No haven't run me off yet, TT has provided a lot of help when I was looking for a newer boat. Good thing I found one, I had no idea how offensive the old one was to some and I woudn't want to offend anyone :) Hope the folks who are trying to buy it can deal with the tower issue.

This has been fun. But what is a "Safe-T-Top"? I always wondered what the chromed plates on the gunnel were for. PS The young guys built their tower after I bought the MC - they must have assumed it was cool to mount the tower to the side of the boat!

A trademarked item by MC to keep the rope from coming back into the boat when it is released when in tension and it was a option on earlier Prostars and looks like this,
