Although not old school, so to speak, I would like to see some ski boats without towers. I guess because ours doesn't have a tower...yet. We haven't decided if we want to put one on because we like the way it looks really low in the water.

Our Response is brand new - But it's a CB and no tower! ;)

I'll take one later today....I got no rollbar on the sporty. Crazy.gif

Consider carefully whether you want to do that...I ski behind two different RLXi's, one with a tower (w/speaker, racks,...) and one without. The one without definitely has a smaller, softer wake. Not that the one with the tower is unskiable, it still has a very nice wake, but the one w/o is better. Yes.gif

Here's my 94 Echelon LX, more pictures in my gallery.

I have to say that I don't notice any difference in my wake now that I have a tower than when I did not, although the ProFlight tower is very light and I do not have it loaded with speakers.

I hear'ya. We'll probably leave it alone. It looks soooo good.

I wish I could upload pictures, but I haven't become a paying member yet.

Sweet boat.

There is something really cool about a ski boat's low profile in the water. Especially the Responses. Yes.gif

Well I know the Titan tower only weights 60 pounds, not really enough to change the wake that much.

60 pounds for the tower...+ speakers, lights, racks,...it turns into a couple hundred pounds (or more) real quick and that is like having an extra person (or two) in the boat.

I did a poll on this. A large portion of the site is 2001 or newer boats.

Well, while the subject has turned to lamenting somewhat:

our 2000 VLX that got sold for a 2004 sunscape brought tears to my mom's eyes!! The night before we sold it, while I was waxing it up, she came running out of the house and pled with me and Dad not to sell. It was a moment that was only topped when he and I showed up with the replacement!

off topic...yes...

nonetheless, we have had pre-2000 bu's...I miss 'em!!!

Style facto' fo' sho'...

a lot more people can afford a new boat than can appreciate a pre-000 ski boat...props to those representin!!!

I agree with all of you guys about the "low profile look"...I remember when I was little and I saw a "nice ski boat" for the first time it was an early 90's nati......I love the way my 92 malibu looks in the water.....I will get a pic.

I don't think I can load a picture of my '92 Flightcraft but if anyone wants to see a low, sleek boat it is pictured on Jason's site.
