    Default Climbing/hanging from 2015 Mojo OZ tower

    I see people on other boats chilling on and jumping off their towers. I'm worried to even try on my OZ tower in case the attachment points fail. Does anybody know if the tower can handle weight hanging from it?

    This is a thing? LOL

    Sounds like an accident waiting to happen.


    Honestly if my kid or his friends started using the tower as a jungle gym, I would beat their ass.....lol

    When my daughter was 10 I caught her swinging on the tower of our Mobius ( while it was parked in the driveway), somehow she managed to swing her feet into the windshield and knocked it out of its track...

    The last thing I am worried about is the strength of the tower (they are very robust)- itís what they accidentally swing in to that would worry me..

    I hang from mine all the time and I've jumped off of it as well. They are plenty stout.
    I don't want someones kids climbing on my tower just from a safety standpoint but it's not likely to hurt the tower

    I donít think the tower will be hurt other than maybe scuffs or scratches.

    But I am envisioning an alcohol induced friend climbing the tower like King Kong did the Empire State Building, getting on top of the Bimini, the water from his board shorts making the tower slippery then seeing him fall ass over tea kettle, taking out the Bimini, getting a leg stuck between the pipes, breaking a board in the board rack hanging upside down bleeding like a stuck pig impaled on a ptm board rack all over my gatorstep.

    What a mess to clean up.

    F-no!!! Wouldnít waste a tourniquet on that stupidity.

    Roll them off the side and cruise away. Price to pay for bleeding on my boat.
