Is buying a tower worth it?
Sep 3rd, 2009 at 8:13am
 
I have been fighting with the idea for a couple seasons and wanted some more perspective. Towers aren't cheap. But those of you that have added them, was it worth the money to you?

It definitely makes getting out of the water much easier, but it depends on what you expect to pay.

So far my research keeps showing that it's going to be close to 2k installed. So I'm holding back for the time being! Hope that helps.

I think it's probably like people modding cars, it's better to find someone else who has already paid the money and buy it from them than do it yourself. That way you can get it for pennies on the dollar.

On the used boats we trade for it does increase the value, though it is not dollar for dollar it gets real close. It can also be used for getting the recreational skiers up a little easier and the added storage you get with racks is nice. Check out the guys in Manor, Texas Wake Tower & T-Tops they will build it and install. Excellent work and service!

You can't overlook it's a great place for mounting speakers too! Smiley
