I will take pics if/when we rig a support.
I screwed an 89 cent j-hook into my garage ceiling and use a short peice of rope looped around the tower light to hold it up.

This is what I did in the garage - a couple of eye screws in the joists in the garage, suspended the tower with a couple of tie down straps - allows the cover to go on and keeps the cushions cushy! Also a piece of PVC across the front to support the front tower legs. This same setup could be done on a dock as well.

To fit in my hoist I need the tower down every time I built a support the carries all the weight of the tower on the support walls. Only downside is the motor hatch cover is partially up. But that also let's water dry out I will try to post photos ASAP.
