OK.. so they figured out how to trailer the boat with the tower in the down position with the use of the new support struts. Now here is the BIG question;

With the tower down, can boat be trailered without removing the (fixed) bimini canvas? I am thinking that the bimini would be at or below the windshield OR the bimini can be angled down so that the bimini is well below the windsheild. In theory, the wind should flow up and over the canvas.?.

I am hoping the intent behine be able to lower to PT for trailering would be to lower the tower (and bimini) below the air slip stream in order to protect it from bugs and drag.

I have towed a few different times with the tower down and the Bimini below the windshield. I watch it in my mirror and the fabric doesn't even ripple or flap.

Do you have the pass through door in your boat? Do you have it closed when trailing?

Nice setup! Should be an advertisement for MC power tower and an advertisement for Ford! What engine do you have in the F150?

Hey DeeeJay02, do you travel on the highway with that set up in the photo? That would be awsome if there was no sign of the canvas buffetting.
