Can you buy a New Malibu G3 Tower from a Malibu Dealer to put on an 2008 Sunscape?

And can anyone tell me if the New Bimini for that Tower Hangs alittle low in the back?

It's not available for purchase right now, with the other Illusion towers they were available a year or two later after they first came out for purchase.

The factory Bimini top is a little too low in back, we modified ours so it sat more flat and we're currently in the process of making our own Bimini top for the G3 like our Illusion Bimini top that we build here at Bake's.

Here is a picture of the modified Bimini top we did at the Seattle Boat Show

we have been using the surf rope from the tower and have ended up wearing out the edge of our stock bimini where the rope has been rubbing it.

Where do you attach your surf rope?

edit: nice boat btw, isn't it a real hassle to get the fins off those things?

I use the ski pylon personally, its so much easier for people to deal with throwing the rope back and forth to the rider.

I've had some customers experience the same issue and we did a couple things to solve it for them. One was using a shock tube like water skiers do, another was using just heat shrink on the rope to make it less abrasive and another used some clear vinyl hose over the rope. All of which worked and stopped the abrasion issues.

Thanks, we always take off all the underwater gear and put them on the ground (small blocks actually keep them off the ground) they show a lot better and it's easier for customers to see inside the boat walking by. It is really hard to get all the gear off, for 4 boats it takes about 2 days to take it all off and 2 days to put it all back together.

Do you guys do custom bimini tops. The stock one doesn't look like it covers much.

Thanks,

Joe

We've done a few custom tops for the IX and XS towers but not the G3 tower yet. We're still working on making one that we like that can be stored up on the tower. The hard part when the Bimini top gets really big is you can't store it anywhere or travel on the freeway unless you over build it which makes the top really expensive when you start welding a lot of stainless frame work on there.
