Tower Options - 2001 Malibu Wakesetter 23LSV


Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Malibu wakesetter 23LSV.  Recently my home owner's association has complained about the boat in my driveway.   I have what I think is a titan series 1 tower.  The front wishbone part doesn't fold low enough to go through my garage door so it needs to be taken off everytime I back the boat into the garage. I am considering getting a new tower.  Are there any good options out there that easily fold down?  I have a standard 7 foot garage door and the new tower will need to fold almost flush with the windshield height.  I am assuming that a new tower that folds better will also come with a different mounting footprint.   Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I would look at the Roswell Aviator series.  They should have info about fold-down height so that you can determine overall height and see if it will clear your garage.

I got a swivel for mine from Star 1 / Titan and had it welded in so it would pivot at the windshield.

If you are interested mine will be for sale later this year. I am going to a G3 tower as a winter project. 

 

May also look through the Malibu Facebook group. Unfortunately it's kind of hard to sift through the posts to find the for sale items. 
I have seen another G3 and  brand new illusion in the group for sale recently.

Do you have the part number for that swivel joint?
