There is an allen head that stays in place and the knob comes out to allow it to swing.

I can take some more pics in the morning.

may be a dumb question but have you tried swapping the allen head with your knobs and folding the tower back instead of forward?

Not a dumb question, and yes I did try that. I gained a few inches, but not enough. Thanks for the suggestion.

cc2mc, I see you are in AL as am I.
I have a 02' xstar with the new dimension tower, if you need to take a closer look at how it is put together, I'm on Lake Tuscaloosa.

Next time I am over that way, I will let you know. I live over in Hoover, so not too far away. I get over that way for business a couple times a year. Thanks for the offer.

My vote would be to modify the boat house. That way, if in the future you go to a different boat, it will still fit. Modifying the tower might possibly lower the value. I speak from experience as I built not only a boat house, but a dock as well for a particular boat, only to have it destroyed during a storm. Replacement boat is bigger/taller. I made it fit, but I really wish I would have built both with a little more hindsight towards the future.

I'm sure it is. He has the OJ fold down swimstep brackets. BTW they do make a kit for your boat as well.

Seems all the photos have been lost but this thread has the info.

Only one bolt, screwed, not a big story to unscrew.

Cool

OK, this may sound crazy but.......
We needed a higher garage because we needed to work on the trucks inside. this garage was 30" wide and 120" long with 10' ceilings. We raised the roof 6' by using 4 tow motors and a couple I-beams, placed pre-fabbed panels in position on top of the original walls once the roof was raised high enough. What about raising the building two courses of block higher and lifting with a couple tow motors and jacks to keep it steady? It would be cheaper to have a welder modify your tower.

We raised 60' of the garage roof, not the whole length.
