I would never try and turn my 190 into a wake boat but when you spend all day on the water with a young family the tower is invaluable!!!!! The 190 is a small boat and having that extra bit of room when towing the little ones on the tube is great. Also for training purposes for new boarders it is a huge help in my opinion.

I say go for it!!!!!
Asking b/c I don't know:
Should the pulling point of the tower be aligned over the pylon for any reason? Performance, balance, etc....Or can the tower be mounted an any reasonable location?

The boat was not designed for a tower

A Skylon or FlyHigh will work great

You can take it up and down pretty fast. If your garage is low like the one in the pic, then the set up time should be the same to assemble the pole vs fold up a tower and tighten it up.

I have considered a tower only to add 2 more speakers. It is NOT worth $3500+ for a tower, bimini top for the addition of 2 speakers and another amp.

A pole with the board racks will allow the higher pull, boards off of the floor of the boat, and if you want speakers then look at the design that I made for my boat. It is pretty loud. I made it out of fiberglass and had it base-clear coated and it lasted a few outings before scratches started wearing on me. I took it off and had it Linex truck bed liner sprayed and called it good. The Skylon gets moved around a lot and I can deal with black texture vs gashes or scrapes.

We use a 2pc. FlyHigh. Only takes a couple minutes to deploy/stow. The boards kinda act like a mini bimini. If you go this route be sure to get or make the rope guide.

Oddly enough I find myself in agreement with Kyle on this one. The 190 is such a sleek design and is never going to be a wake boat. If you need more room or want a wake boat take the cash you'd invest in a tower along with the sale of your boat and find a 205. You'll get the room you want without cutting up what looks to be one very nice 190. The process of selling and buying would admittedly be a pain in the butt.

The pole concept seems the best compromise. Unless you're doing the ND I see the tower concept as adding negative value and limiting future sales appeal. Adding a ND would be neutral at best as far as added value is going to go. People interested in a 190 won't be looking at it for it's wake or passenger capacity features.

Thanks Peter for the complement.

The idea popped in my head so I rolled with it. It took a few weeks to build over a winter month to complete the project after work......I never have seen one and never had instructions. I just rolled off of imagination.



If anyone is interested in better pictures of the box then I can take some. The JL's scream and I even have LED lights in the speakers as well. It's gangsta style

Any chance you have any pics without the bimini? I will be getting board racks for my Fly High and wonder if it would look as clean without the bimini.
