ISO replacement mastercraft tower 07+

Our tower got crushed by our lift, probably would have just stopped at the ceailing expect we had the weakest tower ever put in as it was the 06 x2 tower. I am in a desperate search for a replacement 07-2011 I believe preferable but we are interested in buying any m newer mastercraft tower 07 and up. Ready to buy!! We need out bit fixed before it warms up

Good luck with this quest. Hope you plan on claiming this. That's one expensive tower.

I always thought the 05-06 tower was the strongest. The next generation 07- 2011 needed braces because it shakes.

06 was worst tower they ever put on a boat, the 07 to 2011 was one of the strongest tower mastercraft made after the older school solid as a rock towers

The company that made the 06 tower got sue out the *** as they were all snapping at the board racks and had to start new company lol

I have no first hand experience with this, but that is what I thought I've read multiple times here about the '06. I think the '05 was different than '06. Is it possible the '06 had a mid-model year change?

You left your boat lift on and it smashed through your roof. I fail to see how it’s the towers fault.

Just did a quick search for '06 mastercrafts for sale. These 2 are both listed as 2006's. The second pic is the '06 tower that I identify with when we discuss them.

If I was you I’d just disconnect my roof from the post on my lift house that way when you forget to shut the lift off it just raises the roof up.

06 tower you have was just as strong as the zft3 tower, and the clamping fingers are almost identical, you have no knowledge of what you’re talking about.
