That looks awesome!  Interested to know why you didn't opt for the Axis type tower, though.

The G3.5. I do like how the ski tower prevent the rope from touching it and it ties into the new windshield better, but the bimini coverage is not as good and that’s more important to the family. 
 

I’ll post a full list of options tomorrow from my laptop. 

I debated it a lot, but with my wife’s skin cancer history and the toddler, bimini coverage is more important. G3.5 is in the same spot as the 19, so I know exactly when the rope will slightly touch it and it’s a non factor to me. I think the shorter windshield makes it look further back. 
 

I skied this one at polar bear this year and granted I was probably really narrow because of the wind and 33 degree water/air but it was no different than mine in terms of the tower. Ski wake seemed quite a bit better though!

No flake this year. I tend to do a lot of flake one year then not so much the next.

I guess if your swapping boats annually you might want to oscillate with the flake :)

Just built it at the dealer last night.  Spray date is March 17th.  The green that we actually ordered isn't on the configurator.  We ordered it with the Sumter green metallic color instead of the Malibu green metallic

Well She's home! This by far has been the best one yet as far as fit and Finish from the factory! I found one very minor gel coat chip and that might have been form shipping! But other then that, I could not be more pleased with the build! Its now Off to Gatorstep for some custom triple Soft grip flooring and then a bath in Ceramic coat pro. I will share more of the interior when it's all done!

Was the tinted glass an option from the factory? or aftermarket?

Hey I was taking measurements today for my storage and I’m wondering if this boat will fit in with tower up through my 10 foot bay door? I measured under 8 feet with tower down


Oh and a sneak peek into the Tuscan lol

If you tell us what boat and what tower we can tell you the measurements.

LOL - nope...just always liked blue boats and thought the green was a neat addition to it.  The gren that we are getting isn't in the boat builder so it has more of a black background to it.

No, you’ll need an 11’ door to clear with tower up. I’ve got a 10’ door as well so I keep a bungee in the boat to hold the tower down when parking it.

I cannot find your 120 inch spec on the spec sheet from Malibu. I found 

Height on Trailer G3.5 Tower Folded Down, PTM Racks, 18in wheels    =  110.5''

I cant find that setup with Tow Hoop ON. Will my Tow Hoop add almost 10 more inches?

Height on Trailer, G3.5 Tower Folded Down, Bungee Racks, 18in wheels = 106.5"

I got the updated list from Malibu. I'll try to get it up in the Reources section ASAP.
