I am thinking of buying a 2005 X-7. Does anyone know if the tower is completely removable as opposed to merely collapsable?

I think you can take the top portion off at the very least.

Yea. A buddy of mine has a 2005 197 with a tower. IIRC, you can remove the entire tower except for the brackets in the gunnel.

Why do you want to take it off?

I have a 05 197 (Same boat) and you can remove the tower at several different points. You can unbold the tower from the feet and have the tower off in about 15 minutes. You can also completely remove the tower by unbolting the feet from the boat, the backing nuts are very easy to reach.

I am speaking only about the full height tower. There were several tower versions available on that boat, so my notes only apply to the full tower.

just curious - I have a 2003 with a zero flex - only has one set of nuts on the back. Do your towers have a safety nut on them?
