There were 2 versions of the tower braces. The initial ones that were retro-fitted were cylindrical. Then the next version which were installed from the factory and retro-fitted on some were the versions with the holes as pictured above. This minor modification stiffened the towers significantly.

Were the braces ever installed on the mini tower?

Iím not saying it hasnít been done. Iíve never seen it. Those braces would eat up a lot of room. I think you absolutely hate it. By the way nice boat.

This is a regular tower and at 6’2” I’d have to install a pool noodle around them to protect myself. Can’t see them being an option on the mini tower.

Yeah I have seen them a bunch on the tall tower but never on the mini. I just didn't know if it was needed.
