I have the power tower, makes no noise on the water, even in rough water. They did a software release on the tower, since then the tower works like a champ. I love it, really I do. I was nervous at first but the new module and software they loaded up seems to be working awesome. I tow down, get to the lake I hit my tower remote in the truck, up it goes. Get out of the water, hit the remote after cleaning up and making way, hit tower remote down and down it goes. Love it, plus, it looks bad a$$. Get tons of that looks cool. I think the new tower in the pictures looks horrible, cheap, not MasterCraft forsure... Might look better in person, and I might change my tune if the power tower goes south, but I think they will just keep improving on the electric motor as it goes, not really worried..
But we hear no noise from the tower on the lake, none.
