We've also had a bit of time to play around during winter and have come up with a new Universal Fit Tower design to fit any boat...

The new X-Air Stainless Steel FFX Tower is a forward facing design which does not impair the drivers vision and really opens up the front area of the cockpit as there are no conventional tower legs extending forward.

The Tower also comes complete with an Integrated Bimini Top which has extensive coverage from the sun. Two WakeBoards, WakeSurfers or Wakeskates can be stored on top of the Tower with the optional Bimini Racks.

Thanks Jamie and Graeme for your input.

I will put up a new post with full details soon.

In the meantime if you have any questions or want any more info please email or PM me.

Thanks
Adam

Nice looking tower Adam,

Im sure they will sell well.

Do you guys who have imported boat have issue with the standard NZ tow balls being somewhat different to the US ones? Was talking to a guy in Tauranga the other day who mentioned that i could need to change the trailer coupling to tow the boat in NZ if I didnt want to change the tow ball???

WHen it comes to wiring the lights, is this as easy as one would expect with 6-10 odd wires? Im sure someone mentioned some can be a bit of a nightmare.

Cheers

A 50mm ball is fine for the american trailer IMO, its 4mm smaller than it should be. For the lights you can either replace the american lights and rewire the trailer or you can build a convertor box. You may even be able to buy a box off the shelf but I'm not sure where.

I'm constantly having to change between 50mm towball the OZ built easytow trailer uses and the more common 1 7/8" most kiwi trailers use. It's no biggie but is a time delay. I keep a big ring spanner in the 4wd but next vehicle will definitely get a plug in type towbar.

Or you can use one of these which makes changing the ball not a major

Ralph donít you mean 0.8mm smaller difference between 2" and 50mm tow ball?
I would recommend rewiring the trailer. I did this to my Mastercraft over winter. The original wiring can have issues due to joins not been shrink tubed causing faults as well as they tend to earth all the lights to the trailer. This always causes earthing issues. Ideally you need to earth each light to a common earth to the trailer plug. This is not hard and will cost less than the American converter boxes. I've seen a few on trademe new for more than $100.

Do they have a little pin through the ball that stops it lifting up ?

Yup, the ball part is interchangeable to the shank. The ball has a pin that goes through the ball and shank. To change the pin is pushed through the shank and half of the ball allowing you to remove the ball part only.
Best Bars sell a brand of convertaball.
