Tower boom might be your best option. They are a bit of a pain to put on while on the water but they work.

Give a shout out to Mike and Lane at BF International and they will figure out a solution even if they have to custom bend one for you.

We used a v-drive boom when we did a barefoot clinic with KSO on Berlin when we used an X-14 from BHM. It went between the tower and the windshield.

I spoke to BI a few weeks ago and they thought the B202 would work (which says windshield within 8" of pylon) but the windshield is further back. I plan to take some new measurements and send them their way tonight.

Tight space in there, but that is what I planned to do.

Do you have any pictures of it mounted? Just not sure how it works with that big base.

I might at home, I will look tonight. When you say big base are you referring to the mounting bracket where the boom attaches? The base remains mounted on the tower but it is completely out of the way. The boom slides in and is held in place by a large quick release pin. The two support arms mount further up the tower leg and are held in place by two smaller quick release pins. It's just a little awkward installing while on the water since you are leaning over the side of the boat, must have at least two people and another holding the cable - "just in case"

No, I was referring to this base since I am not sure where all the mounting points are at..
