I love this feature! Congrats! I can see a new power tower that automatically rolls out the racks when it comes up, and rolls in the racks when it lowers (i.e. auto-garage feature). This could also make a lot of sense when docking, because I literally swing my racks in/out 10x per day coming up to other boats, docks, gas pumps, etc. I hope you make bank!

Do you have anything in the works to integrate the wiring into the tower? I think that would finish the look a lot more.

Best of luck to you. Hope you sell so many that it allows you to upgrade your boat to a brand new MC... (with your racks installed on your new boat as a factory option).
Eventually, yes, the wiring will be run through the tower. We ran it outside since these are really the first test versions and didn't want to start cutting into the guys tower until we know it's finalized. There will be a wiring harness that runs to the helm and has a selector/controller. There's also the possibility of integrating into the screens if things become an OEM option. Currently, on the X26 pictured above, they run off a key fob remote.

This is exactly what I was thinking too. Closing it up at the dock to cover, press a button and donít worry about the racks.

It's just a relay at that point. Racks first, tower second when going down. Tower first, racks second going up.

How about backing into your garage, or driving down the highway and noticing the racks are out? Just push the button on your key fob rolling down the highway or backing into your driveway, and racks are now stowed. Didn't even have to get out of the truck.

So baller. I watched the owner of TXMC get out of his truck at the ramp and put the tower up on a new star. Definitely a baller status thing. There are so many times I can think where I have to get out of the drivers seat to swing in the racks.. gas dock, docking, tie ups, etc

Very cool. Love to see this all coming together for you. Being able to break away from the 9-5 is a great deal. And doing it in the marine market is even better.
