I don't understand how something like that could happen. I've seen towers on backwards, too far forward, too far back....but that is just ridiculous.

My entry. This is a local PS on CL.

Subtract $1k (minimum) for having to remove tower, fix gel, buy new tower and install.

Did someone hire the handicapped to install? Tow point inverted, W*F?

They must have assembled it inside-out.

while no doubt that first tower is absolutely ridiculous looking and a boat destroyer.....The inverted tow point is more common than you think. Several MFG's offer it.

But holy cow......his Nautique privileges should be revoked immediately

Almost want to buy this just to take the tower off. If the 190 was red I would have.

Looks like the tubing and fittings came from the electrical conduit section at Home Depot. They forgot to add a ladder to reach the board racks too.
