Sounds like a mini-tower would suit your needs pretty well. They are nice for storing boards, mounting speakers, bimini, etc.

With that said, if it were me the New Dimension tower is the only one that looks right on that hull. Others just look funky, for example the monster tower.

Got any pics of your boat?
I was njskier on here.

That is a 2001 with a ND mini tower, slalom rack on the drivers side, wake board rack on the observers side and a mastercraft bimini. Don't remember the whole cost but it wasn't cheap. Ordered everything direct from ND and had my local dealer do the install. It was worth every penny and then some.

That is the exact same prostar i have. The same color, tower, trailer, Besides the wheels. its an 01 right?

My 93 190 S&S came with a tower already on it, or i never would have put one on. I actually thought about taking the mounts off the boat and covering back up with glass, but after I used it a few times, I actually like it. Mine comes off with 4 bolts, and is pretty light, so my wife and I can take it off or put it on quite easily. I've got some board racks , and it does keep the clutter out of the boat very nicely, which is handy in a boat with little room. It also has a custom made bimini which is great on super sunny days. I mostly wake skate as well, so the higher pull point is nice.

That being said, it's still off more than it's on. The boat just looks better without it in my opinion.

Is it worth the expense or will I regret putting a tower on a hardcore slalom boat? Will the weight of the tower make my wake bigger?
If you have 3 kids, they will eventually want to bring their friends to the lake. I installed a tower on my Prostar because with a family of 4, equipment, several friends and a dog, we could actually use the back seat when someone was behind the boat.

Your boat, your decision. If you do get one, go with New Dimension.
