Before you can start using your new wakeboard tower, you have to have it installed on your boat. You have a couple of different options when it comes to installing a wakeboard tower. You could do it yourself and save some money, or you can take your boat and tower to a local professional to have it installed. To help you decide which option is best for you, read on to learn about both methods and figure out if you should do it yourself or take your tower to a professional installer.
Installing Your Wakeboard Tower Yourself
You do have the option to DIY your own wakeboard tower. Doing your own installation is a much more economic option if you don’t want to spend the money for a dealer to do it. We try to make it as easy as possible for you to install your own wakeboard tower. With every wakeboard tower purchase, you will receive an instruction manual that shows you how to install your tower. Those installation manuals can be viewed and downloaded here: Technical Information
Not only do the instructions make the process much easier for you, we have purposefully designed our wakeboard towers to be easy for you to install. If you have any questions or concerns during your installation process, we offer phone and email support to walk you through the entire process. All hardware and Allen wrenches are provided with your wakeboard tower. You will need a drill, drill bits, and a wrench to install your wakeboard tower. We suggest using socket wrenches, but you can also use adjustable wrenches. Many of our customers choose to install their wakeboard towers and have successfully done it themselves!
You may be concerned about mounting the flat base of the tower to the curved surface of your boat. Other manufacturers may say it is fine to mount a flat plate to a curved surface, we do not recommend doing this. We didn’t want to leave any room for error, so we developed the Monster Paw, an industry first. The Monster Paw is an EPDM rubber mounting pad that is designed to be installed between the mounting hardware and the fiberglass surface of your boat. It contours to the shape of your boat and reduces stress at the mounting points, further protecting your boat.
Using a Professional Wakeboard Tower Installer
If you aren’t sure about installing your wakeboard tower yourself, you can always hire someone to do it for you. While you will spend more money hiring someone to install it for you, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you have professional expertise for tricky installations. A professional also has more experience with tasks that you might be hesitant about doing yourself, such as fiberglass reinforcement.
