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

How is that possible? They still come on new MCs don't they? I would hate to find out they stopped making them.

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.
That would be a lot of work. Probably easier for me to just tear down the roof and rebuild as the roof is not that large. The walls would have to be supported as the roof is pretty much the only thing keeping it from falling, I think. I called the local MC Dealer and they do not have anyone they use to modify towers. I may see if I can find the MC tower manufacturer and call them to see if they could help me out.

Instead of rebuilding the garage how about a new (factory spec) tower? Probably easier and cheaper than the garage fix. And then you'd have the factory tower which is a good thing IMO.

So what I am guessing is that it would not fit unless he folded it down and that they no longer make the fold down set up

I don't have a problem with the swim platform. I have another foot before I run out of room there. It is just the tower rear legs.

I know you said deflating your tires wasnt enough. What about buying the smallest tires you can find to put on the trailer. Your only moving the thing a few yards as it is.

nevermind just read your about a foot off. would have to be a pretty tiny tire :-)

Good thought. I will have to see what I would gain in doing that. I gained a few inches by folding it back and maybe with the combination of new tires, I could possible make that work. I will have to measure the boat on the trailer with the tower folded and see.

Mc still offers them on their new boats, but OJ no longer offer thems as a retrofit option. The brackets are made in house by MC distributor. I believe the machining ended up being too much for not a ton of demand on the retro kits being offered by OJ. There were a couple of batches produced and when they ran out they ran out. I was looking for a set a bit ago and that's what I was told.
