Consider a ND bimini, http://www.newdimensiontowers.com/home.html and install a set of pop up cleats where the old bimini bases were and nobody will ever know.

Pop up cleats, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ghlight=cleats, tutorial in posts 45, 46 & 55.

I am not worried about the size of the boat just the size of the wake. Does anyone know the answer too this. Would the wake be smaller than the one behind a 19 foot stingray or a 19 foot older model wellcraft I/O's? I know lots of questions, but just not many direct or v-drives up this way. Thanks for all the answers.
I ski at about 32-34 on my 230 and the wake flattens out quit well. Under 28 it has a pretty good lip.
Few pics not real good wake shots but may give you an idea, @15 off 32-34 on the ski, 9mph surfing, he can let go and ride a ways, wakeboard at about 18 maybe a little slower

Tower on the Maristar in the Picture

Hey MariStar-Man, can you tell me what kind of tower you have on the Maristar 210VRS that you show pictures of in your post?

Here is a thread on how I retrofitted my old bimini to fit my tower: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...fitting+Bimini
Mine used to be mounted just like yours. It is kind of a hassle to do, but it will cost you much less than buying a new one. Good luck. By the way, nice color combination on your Maristar. Looks familiar!

maristar man, harold and russlars have great suggestions. i'll throw out another in case you're going to spend some cash. towerbiminis.com. they're spendy, i think i paid $800, but it's awesome. sunbrella, tool-less, easy up and down, factory cover works no problem (doesn't mount to windshield) and it rides higher and is larger (or not) than factory bim. they'd have your template already and mine has served me well. stock mc replacement was $850 and my ratchet cover wouldn't have worked. just a thought.

swatguy can testify. check 'em out.

Ive got my towerbimini getting shipped out tomorrow and cant wait for it. completely custom work so I made some changes on mine thatll make it different. Hopefully I can post some pics next week. Eagle MC, not sure what tower that is on marimans boat but it looks exactly like a New Dimension. Just put my ND tower on last week and you can go wrong with those. Installation was simple due to quality
