Keep the canopy just put some tube extentions on. You will miss the protection a canopy provides.

Don't know where you are located but am interested in buying a lift canopy.

Jeff-get the extensions so you can drive in with tower up. I have a 209 with the 2005 tower and it collapses below the windshield height. I only collapse my tower when I put it away for the night or leaving the cabin. I can suck up just as far as I could if I didn't have a tower but can also drive in to park it during the day with tower up and still lift the boat about a foot out of the water. This is the only pic I have at the moment. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1362685332.169123.jpg

Thanks Guys; I am dealing with shallow water and a very tall tower. My neighbor who I bought the lift from offered to make me some extentions, but when I crank the lift up to get the hull just out of the water, I decided if the tower is up and underneith the canopy, its so high that it won't offer much protection and I would have to keep the cover on anyhow. The other inboards on the lake that are much nicer than mine, all have open lifts to accomadate the towers. I actually sold the canopy to another neighbor.

This is probably the best solution. I hate the steel screwknobs into the threaded aluminum tower, I feel like everytime I collapse the tower a few metal shavings are sacrificed!

Pulled the trigger on a new Al dock system today. I finally was honest with myself that I don't have the time to build a new wooden system and that the boat show price on this Al dock was about the same BOM cost as a wooden less all the assembly time (cutting wood, mounting brackets, etc.). This is my design and I also copied a picture of the decking and frame as an example.
