Here's another idea for the Bimini. Its from Barefoot International and attaches directly to the pylon so no holes in the deck. It is very solid even at barefoot speeds and comes off quickly by pulling out a couple of pins, the mount bracket stays on the pylon. I have the mount for mine just below the clamp for the boom and as you can see it works fine with a fly high as well.

The BI Bimini is no longer available. It has been discontinued for about a yr.

LLS,

Great looking boat. I appreciate how the original lines of the boat remain undisturbed by avoiding the addition of a tower. Is there any chance that you have a picture of the pylon base? I'm trying to get an idea how the boom and pylon extension connect/mount without interfering with one another.

What company makes the bracket that attaches to the ski pylon rather than slipping over it? I was thinking BI, but did not see it on their website. Anyone use the bracket. Thoughts on the bracket?

PineLake...Sorry but I don't have a photo of the Bimini mount handy and the boat is at the lake house....I'll be heading up in a couple of weeks and can get one then.

As far the the mount for the Fly High, look at a company by the name of Tachyon Motorsports. Here's a link to the web page that has the mount.

If anyone is interested in better pictures of the box then I can take some. The JL's scream and I even have LED lights in the speakers as well. It's gangsta style
Your speaker box looks awesome! Would to see some pictures of the build if you have them.

Custom tower by lightning but just to give you an idea lightning also does universal towers. Custom or universal was cheaper than ND when I was dealing with them.
