Jzone, personally I reckon that boat is just too original to spoil with a tower, it is beeyootiful just like it is !!

@dudester, Your right, i really don't want to ruin the looks of the boat, but wake boarding from the the pole on the back pulls me down when i'm jumping :(

Go a high pole that's relative to the height of your wake and wake jumps. If you fit a modern tower it'll be too high for that hull and pull the boat around heaps.

If you still want to fit a tower I reckon the liquid Indy tower (or equivalent) suits these hulls the best.

@Nevergrew I don't have much room in the boat, will it take up much room, putting in a high pole. Also is there any particular brand that's better than others or is fluid core about it?

No they don't take up much room, but you need to allow enough space in the sub floor (just forward of your engine) for the high pole base. This just screw bolts to your bearers.

The beauty of a high pole (over a tower) is you install the high pole for wakeboarding and then remove it, leaving your boat looking stock.

Go the high pole for sure. A tower will kill the look of that beautiful beast.

IMO a tower is more practical than a high pole every day of the week.
I'd put a tower on it in a heartbeat - these old girls have so little room I reckon anything you can do to open some up is a good thing.

I agree, just important to chose the right tower that suits the boat lines.

Whats the wake like on these 14-15ft clinkers. I just got a project one for wakeboarding/kneeboarding ect. Obviously im not expecting miracles but any tips on how to improve it would be great.
