Operating under the theory that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of headaches, here is some useful information that will prevent any scratching during the Wakeboard Tower assembly.
As you are taking the arms and top center section out of the box, place masking tape strips around the top conjunction sections of the tubes that slide inside. This allows you to move and adjust the tubes without scratching the surface. But please use caution when sliding the sections together.
Keep the masking tape in place through the final assembly step, then, after drilling, remove the masking tape and your surface will be perfect.
Note that this installation guide is only a guideline. Each boat is different and improvisation is needed to mount your tower on your boat. We advise you to have your tower mounted by a professional who has experience in boat constructions and mounting other towers. All hardware is to be hand tightened. Do not use air tools or electric drills to tighten hardware. Tower is designed for one rider at a time. Do not tow tube riders or multiple riders with tower.
