View Full Version : Removing Tower Help

04-20-2011, 06:12 PM
I have a 2009 TT 197 and would like to take tower off because we don't use it. What I need help with is, Does any know if MasterCraft or any where else where I can get a plate to cover where tower bolts to deck on boat, both front and back? Any help would be great..

I think you would be better off taking your boat to a reputable fiberglass specialist -- he can fill the holes and match the gel coat and more than likely you would not be able to tell the holes were there in the first place....

IMO it would look a lot better to have the holes glassed over as opposed to installing a plate over them. You can get a referral from your local MasterCraft dealership -- they may even have a fiberglass person on staff....

Any metal/machine could make plates. I assuming you want the option, to reinstall the tower. Other option would be, thick faux carbon fiber(decal) sheets (ebay) or real carbon fiber, glued to hull.

My fibreglass guy, charges $200.00, for that fix. Don't ask, how I know this.
