I don't think I have ever seen a white tower, but I think it would provide a real "clean" look to the boat...I have toyed with the idea myself

Polished aluminum so it can be easily refinished.

I voted I like pie, because I do. As far as the color goes, white would be cool but unlikely to match the white gel. Black would be good but would get awfully hot. I would be most likely to go with aluminum. Teal wouldn't be a consideration.

Two Chrome 10 hole wheels with Kenda Loadstar radials.
Mounted, balanced & delivered.
With ST205/75R14..........$309
With ST215/75R14..........$346

CARBURETOR REBUILDING - $199 Parts, labor & return shipping included
Holley Marine 4160 Freshly Rebuilt $349 - Delivered (no core charge)

You can get 2 tone also, white on bottom/mount with polished aluminum on top/tower or vise-versa........... I have seen this before and it looks good.

Aluminum for sure.. Black and painted towers chip,scratch, etc. With polished you can just take mothers to it once every few years.
