Has anyone one here found a wake tower for a 2005 sx230 that allows you to keep your normal bimini top? It looks like most I'm finding will block the top.

That was my experience when looking for tower for my Sx230. Many people would just shorten the Bimini frame legs to make it fit.

I just bought my 2005 SX230 HO in early October and the previous owner had installed a hinged wakeboard tower so he could get the boat through the garage door at his house. All I need to do is remove two hand tight knobs, lift the tower about 10" and the bimini folds up and down underneath the tower. Takes every bit of 15 seconds to fold up or down.

I have the same setup. Generally it goes up when we get to the water and stays up until we leave.
