New to the tower world

New to the tower world
I need help identifying this tower that came with the boat I found in a barn out here in Idaho.
Mostly because if I mount this to the boat I will need to figure out the best way to put a Bimini top on.
Also some insight into what exactly mounts to the little clip/bracket things?

Yes, mounts for a factory bimini top. The frame for the top has ball joints that flip into those receivers. Tower looks to be a '05/06 version.

Yup. 05/06

Any good shop can make you a custom. I can send pics of my 209 with this tower and Bimini. Send me a message to remind me

That's the 2005, 2006 X7 tower since I see a 197 behind. Search that image for examples.

Awesome thanks. So this would be a Mastercraft tower, not a zero flex or a new dimension? When I got it it was in a field bundled up with duct tape. I just now had a chance to clean it up and put it together. The boat is a 2002 197 . Struggling with my search capabilities right now because we are in the middle of moving and don't have the Internet in the new house. I can't wait to put this together

Hey Mark,

here are some pictures from the 06 X2 with the Tower, swivel Racks, Bimini (same Mounts as your Tower) and stock Speakers/Lights.

Hope it helps you

New to the tower world

Have a 2006 X-15 with the same factory tower. It's not a ND or ZFT, you are correct. For that era (05-06) Mastercraft used Xtreme towers. That's the make of your tower above. You should be able to find a factory Bimini to fit that tower fairly easily with a search for Mastercraft Xtreme tower Bimini. Just remember the 197 is not as wide as an X15, X2, X30, or X45. You'll need one for the X7 or X9 if you find one used or on GreatLakesSkipper
