Hey guys,

I just wanted to get thoughts and opinions. I hate that these boats have anodized aluminum towers so they are very hard to keep looking nice and you cant polish them. In a perfect world I would want this tower chrome but that's not an option I suppose. I was thinking of having it powder coated black, blue, white etc... I also plan to cover all orange you see on the boat with a vinyl wrap either black or a grey.

Powder coat white. Also, keep the orange. Adds accent to the blue. Nice boat!

Good looking boat! I'm a fan of the color you already have on it. I was the same with my tower and finally found if I clean it wit the Boat Bling hot sauce every time I did the boat it kept it pretty decent looking. I think with tinted glass I would go for a black tower if set on going color.

I agree black especially if you're gonna cover the orange with black. Tinted winhshield, that would look slick

I vote black. I also like the orange as is. It stands out from other boats and it isn't too excessive.

I'm still not 100% set on covering the orange, just a thought. So seems like the majority is voting black. I agree it would look nice with the tinted windshield and a black Bimini top. To bad I can't photoshop it lol.

One of my favorite things I did was powder coat the windshield frame and tint the glass. Doing the tower would really look good.

I would powder that tower white in a heartbeat.

Here is an idea since it's uncommon to stumble across the white tower for ideas.

I had a vinyl guy cover the chrome on the windshield frame in an accent color. It was the same guy that tinted the windows.

One more vote for white with the color of your boat white would look sick black would look out of place imo

I have black and love it, but it shows every finger smudge. If I could have the choice I would do white as well. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160125/e39c28f4fae0141da709c13e0162cd13.jpg

Thanks for all the input guys. I almost thought about wrapping one side with white vinyl and the other withe black just so I could step back and see both options. The white towers above look awesome though.
