Got an update on The MasterCraft Project. Tower has been removed and glass work is progressing. She's being saved.

I will admit.


I would take a footing run any day behind that boat and off of the highest pull. I'm sure that boat will haul ars and on that kind of water that we rarely get, I'm sure I'd have a blast.

Several footing schools are using add on tower extender. Honestly I would like to try it at least once.


But it does look different I must say.

I don't know why people hate on that wooden tower above, everytime I see that pic I always think those guys are pretty darn resourceful and probably had a great time on that boat.

Not everybody has cash to burn and I'm always for good old yankee ingenuity.

My entry. This is a local PS on CL.

Subtract $1k (minimum) for having to remove tower, fix gel, buy new tower and install.

Did someone hire the handicapped to install? Tow point inverted, W*F?
This tower is from a late 90's to early 2000's Tige. It was their factory tower. They really wobble from side to side. It's kinda ugly, but from first hand experience the tow point on the bottom is nice. What the H*%$ is doing a a Prostar, I have no idea, and it should be a jail-able offense.
