the 07 tower is great. No issues with it at all... It is very solid. The timers on the 07s is a max of 6 minutes. Pretty sure the 08s, it was increased to 10 minutes. However, 6 minutes of fill time fills my hard tank and my 455 lbs add on bag with no issues. Just idle the engine up a little while filling.

Clarks,

Your X2 has the braces.......but the 2007's didn't originally come with those installed. The owner could go to their dealer and get them from Matercraft. Some dealers installed them for free, and some didn't. Without those braces, the tower shook quite a lot. That is why MC came out with the braces.

One more question for you guys.

Looking at a 2006 X2 now. When the rear half of the tower folds, it looks like the back half of the tower pivots on the rear mounting point onto of the gunwale.

When the tower is folded down, can you remove the bolt/pin and pull the entire rear half of the tower off?

Thanks!

If you unscrew the two aft pivot points you could pull the entire tower off. But, you had better have a few big friends with you as it is really heavy.

Harry- Thanks.

Are they a regular hand screw or a bolt?

Reason I asked is my garage is a 7 foot door. Right around exactly 84 inches, maybe a tad less.

The x2 is on a single axle trailer. Seems like it may or may not fit in my garage. I only store it twice a year, so if I have to unbolt the tower twice a year, no big deal.

I have an '06 X2 on a single axle trailer too. My door is claimed to be 7', but when I measured it is closer to 6' 8". I brought the boat to the house one day to see if it would fit in the garage and with the tower folded, it looked like the boat was going to be a couple of inches too tall. If I let some air out of the tires or dropped the hitch with a floor jack, I might could get it in, but it would be close. If you actually have 7 feet of opening I think you will be able to get it in there.

Do not even attempt to remove the back half of the tower by yourself, especially if you have speakers up there. That thing is HEAVY!!

It is just a hand tightened knob. I would grab a few buddies to help you with this one. Everything that is going to touch is gel coat - and you don't want that. It has to be around the 400 pound mark and very awkward.

Wow, 400 lbs I might need like 4 guys. Wow.

Anyway, here is the boat I am looking at:

The guy says it's electric brakes, but I am not sure he is really sure. I've never seen electric brakes on a 2006 single axle trailer.

They will definitely be surge hydraulic, correct?

Thanks again

Unless the trailer has been altered from the picture those are the standard hydraulic brakes. Love the surfboard rack on the top of the tower. I was looking at a set of those but the place that made them went out of business. That and they were pricey at the time I was looking at them.
