Time Capsule

Yes the winter can make you a little crazy...thinking of the lake. Today I created a time capsule of our boat. I am a skier at heart, but really like having the tower...even if it is on a 190.

I'll never call anyone "Crazy" for their preference. Personally I really like the 190 without the tower. That's me.

You guys are right and I can't say that I disagree with you. My kids migrated towards wakeboarding...I know that they will outgrow the wake but I can't justify spending money on a boat when this one is paid for. Plus I love this boat and I'm a skier first and foremost.

Best thing about a tower on a ski boat, is it makes the back seat useable! I wonder how many of the critics have ever been out with 4 kids and 2 adults in a ski boat. I never did the tower, but a sky pole sure made the boat a lot more comfortable.

Not to mention that with a tower, you can have that very valuable bimini during those hot summer days...especially with little ones, and tower speakers

Sorry for the "bump". Wans't trying to be critical, just my personal taste. BTW I too have a sky-pole. Haven't been able to use it yet, I'm missing the rigging to the bow hook. I will get what I need though and then give 'er.

I also did not mean to be critical. It is your boat, do what you want and works for your situation. I am only a skier in the course and when I ski it is with one other person (also a course skier). We show up, ski 3 sets and are off to work or something else in 2 hours. I have no need or interest in putting a tower on my 190 but can see the benefit with kids and number of occupants.

Mine also came without a bow strap. I picked up a 4' strap at Northern Tool. Works perfect.
