Replace Flyhigh tower w/ different tower

I've searched several threads and can't find an answer to my question. I have a '03 Prostar 205V which came with a Flyhigh tower. I've had the boat for 3 years and would like to replace it. It's very noisy, bolts always coming loose and old looking. I've read reviews on ND and Joystick towers (any others I should consider) and leaning towards one of them to replace the Flyhigh. Question, would I need to repair (fill) the Flyhigh bolt placements prior to installing a new tower?

Anyone with a Joystick or ND on a Prostar 205V that I can see?

Thanks in advance.

All X2 01-'04 are ND towers from the factory

From ND website. This is your best bet for resale value, quality, and looks.

Go with ND, IMO.
If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

You should post a pic of the tower that's on it now. If your really lucky you may be able to reuse the front or rear holes but I would really doubt all 4 would match up.

New dimension is what everyone on here will recommend as that was the factory tower for those boats. They do look good and are known to be strong. Only problem is the price on them. For what just the ND tower cost you can likely get a tower, racks, Bimini, and speakers if you go with a Joystick, Aerial, Indy, or something like that. I don't really think any tower will hurt the resale as long as it looks good and is installed properly but many on here will disagree with that.

No tower>ugly crap tower

Get what your budget allows. I would personally go with the ND also.
