Strange, if you're going to own a TT why do that? Probably wanted to be different...and really succeeded:eek:

probably wanted that forward look but did not want to spend the cash for a really good looking tower and look. Is that an old tower on the floor on the other side of the TT?

I like the mini towers on the TTs. That tower just doesn't do justice to that boat. You have to believe that to someone that was what made the boat. Someone that owned a I/O before that is.....

It's a 2011 TT, I doubt it was a choice based on budget.

Apparently they wanted the tower that far forward, it would have looked better further back, each to his own I guess but if you really want a tower on one of these surely a mini tower is the only option, it's not a 20 year old boat.

All towers are ugly. This one just goes towards the top of the ugly list.

That's a bad copy of a Malibu concept, forward swept tower. The only thing cool is it does not obstruct your view but I think I will pass.

installed properly just way too far forward....

What aftermarket tower would you guys suggest for a 197?

I have a customer that wants to add one for his 2012 and head clearance is a concern. He is coming from a Response that had a Titan, which he loved.

Look on the Mastercraft web site under the proshop tab which is just under the Team Talk tab . They sell the newer tower designs for 197's that fold and have swivel board racks. It would look the best with that one. All others would look aftermaketish and most likely wont fold down.

Poor, beautiful boat, what have they done to you?

Seriously????? :rant::rant:

Take that boat away from them IMMEDIATELY!!!! That doesn't want to make me cry, it makes me want to curse and scream! I mean, I know it's their boat and they can do what they want.......but THAT!?!?! They just LOST about 15K on that boat with that thing on it!!

I'll paraphrase Lewis Black on this issue: "If you see somebody take a TT boat and put an ugly tower on it. You get a stick.....and you HIT 'EM! And you say, "NO"! Then you take their nose and rub it in the tower like they had peed on the floor". :mad:

That is the ugliest tower set up I have ever seen, IMO it is a crime to put a full size tower on any 190 or 197!

I would suggest you tell him to buy a wakeboard boat not a pure skiing dream machine.

New dimension mini tower for best looks. Full tower from the same for clearance.

That is why you don't have your kid build you a tower in metal shop.

It just doesn't flow with that boat. If the guy wants to put a tower on a ski machine, at least get one that compliments the lines of the boat...not breaks them up.

you could take any ski boat with a tower on it and place it in this thread IMO

JBrew ... the tower is not the issue .... they mounted the boat backwards under the tower ....

only one fix ..... remove the tower ... patch holes on gel coat, and send an apology to all the other 197 owners on the planet.

I've always loved the ND/ZeroFlex Mini Towers. They look the best on a 190/197. I was not a fan of the '08-13 Mini Towers. I am sure my sentiment will remain for the '14 Mini Towers.

I'll echo what the others have said. That looks waaaay better than the most recent mini. No offense meant anyone.

Sorry... they need to match the angle of the windshield with the angle of the front legs. I love how the older mini just looked like it fit, rather than just being thrown on.

It was my first thought 5 years ago and it still remains. :o
