This thing is a monstrosity, can anyone tell me what tower this is? I've been searching all over, and can't seem to find anything like it. What are the chances that I'll be able to swap out for a different tower with a lower profile using the same mounting points? Just a newb who's never installed a tower before, thanks.

Early MB Sports boats had a tower that looked very similar to that. Metcraft also made one like that as did an aftermarket company years ago.

That tower came on a lot of tiges between like 1998-2001 but idk who makes it. We have an 2001 tige 23v with a tower exactly like that one and have done extensive machining to solidify ours. It used to shake alot and would break right where the poles come up the sides and meet the top part, but now ours doesnt budge.

Definitely an older Tige tower that's been moved to the Supra.

'Diy wake' towers will fit the front feet. The rear fet can be covered with a small stainless steel plate and then add any tower you want.

Failing that, a gel repair would be easy on the boat. Could do it yourself and just start again.

We have something like that tower at our gym.....

I bet a monster tower would fit pretty close to those mounting points.

If you contact Samson Sports they can make their towers to fit old mounts. We swapped out a Phat Buddy tower off of our 98 Tige to the Samson Razor tower and had them do the install. We haven't had any issues at all. They used the same front mounts and then used new rear mounts on the side instead of on the top but they installed pop up round fender hanger thingies in the old rear holes so you'd never know there was a tower mounted there at one time.

The towers are a little pricier than some of the universal options but it's a solid tower and the one we got has swivel boar racks which is super nice!!!
