2010 X14V Tower ?

I want to change the zft3 tower on my X14v to a zft2 or zft4. reason being for simplicity. I use the boat a lot, but I have to collapse the tower each time i use the boat due to garage height. This wears on the plastic tower knobs (on and off) and replacing them at 70$ a piece is not fun. I want the simplicity of the zft2 and zft4 (unscrew/turn, pull and drop it down)

Can anyone advise on my possible options.
thanks

I can be of help if you need a XFT4 tower, which is what I recommend. I can get one drop shipped direct to your home. You will need to also order a bimini top. You should be able to transfer over the board racks.

If I can be of assistance please let me know

Tower Change question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I want to change the zft3 tower on my 2010 X14v to a zft2 or zft4. Want an even quicker way to put up and down. We use the boat a lot, but I have to collapse the tower each time i use the boat due to boat garage height. This wears on the plastic tower knobs (on and off) and replacing them at 70$ a piece is not fun because they just wear out to easy in my opinion (coupling section knob mostly) . I want the simplicity of the zft2 and zft4 (unscrew/turn, pull and drop it down)
I can fix the holes from the front tower section by using the custom gas caps on MasterCraft by Design to "cap" the holes, so that's not an issue. I just want something better and not have to drop another 80k to get it.

Can anyone advise on my
