Need some advice Tower vs. Skylon

Ok, since no one wants to buy my boat I guess I'm going to keep and it and make it more awesome

What would you guys recommend... putting a tower on or just a pylon/skylon? I'm having a hard time with this decision. I don't want to keep the boat for more than a couple of years because I'd REALLY like to upgrade to an open bow. If I went with a tower it would be the Monster MK1.

What do you all think? Attached is a pic of the boat (incase you haven't seen it )
As always, thanks in advance for the help!

I'd do the skylon, especially since you said the only tower would be the monster, imo monsters don't look good and only tower that look good in a ps190 is a nd mini tower.

Do you have a pic of the nd mini tower? I don't think I've seen that one.

Not a fan of the Monster Products on any MC. Not really a fan of stripper poles (unless we are at the strip club of course).

ND or Samson towers if you want to go all out and be a baller ($3000)

Joystick if you want to be more practical but still want quality ($800).

Just my .02

Hmm, I'll have to look at those towers then... Is there any reason you guys are against the Monster towers in general? Or they just look retarded on MC's?

we have a PS195 and spent a season on that decision
went with the skylon, because:
1)any tower we looked at did not look right on the boat
2)very low need for us on the wakeboarding side, so when someone wants to board we put it on , takes 5 min
3)when I take it off, my boat is still so beautiful I can't take my eyes off it!!!
just my 2 cents

Close, Give them a call. You will be surprised. Its an affordable decision that adds value (depending on who is looking at it) I think the MC 190 with mini tower is the sexiest thing on water.
