I think the final decision for me occurred when a friend photoshoped the ND mini tower onto my boat as it really looked great and in my opinion flowed better with the lines of the boat.

Just my 2 cents.
The ND tower looks and functions way better than the '08 and up mini. The biggest gripe I have with the ZFT3 mini is the location of the top crossbar. It is behind you when you stand up from the driver seat. You have to duck to go to the back of the boat. Granted, everyone smashes their head at least once on the ND mini when standing up quickly from the driver or passenger seat, but that is usually all it takes to bring awareness.

The ND looks great on your 40th.

I did have a custom bow cover made for the boat that snaps in under the rubrail (I did not like the factory option of having snaps into the top deck of the fiberglass).

The tower is a ND Mini with a black bimini, board rack and slalom rack.
Looks very nice!!! Sweet boat, love the 40th..
