Don't do it the 2002 hull is not favorable .hold out for something better if you really want to upgrade that's more like a downgrade

MC switch hulls between 2002 and 2003. The 2002 TT boats were the prototypes. It was finalized on all 2003 190/197 models. This is if you want the best slalom wake.

Keep yours and put a mini tower on it! The bow of a 197 is so small, only good for kids IMHO.

Or find an '03 35th anniversary 197 with a tower. There was one on here for sale not too long ago.

I agree with jersey , save your self the time and money and just add a tower and ballast if that's what your looking for. Aside from the hull on the 2002 , the rear trunk lids are PITA in regards to the rope. It always gets caught between the doors. In 2003 they changed the doors where the back rest extended all the way up. Solved the rope issue. If you really want an upgrade go for a 2006 197. Otherwise keep yours.

I heard if i put a tower on mine it might devalue it to ski purists being a 190 tt ???

Maybe a bit ,but that's a small market. Just don't put on anything other than OEM or ND. I will dig up and old pic of my 04TT with anND tower. Mine was a 197 so it would have been perfect for you !
