Tower opinions needed for 96 Sunsetter

Recommended Posts


Been looking at towers for my 96 Sunsetter, it doesn’t have a tower currently. From what I read, Samson is the best, but I dont want to spend that much on a budget boat (coming from a 18’ S238), and want to keep this boat reasonably priced all the way around. 

Any opinions are welcome. I’ve pretty much looked at all towers at this point. Mounting locations: is it stronger and less likely for cracking if mounted in top vs sides? 

I like the Big Air X tower looks, similar to Samson, but I’m not set on design, more strength and a good price point. 

I’m on the larger size over 250 lbs, and don’t want to be breaking any towers or fiberglass lol. 

I think I have read most threads on this forum, but most are older, and maybe there is some new info out there to be gleaned.
