    We are close to pulling trigger on one & trying to find clearance height of tower as we need to make sure it’s going to fit in our boat dock that is covered.

    Thanks!

    Have you asked your dealer? They have a handbook that lists this type of thing. Short of that, download the owner's manual on SR's website and check the specs there. Don't worry if you don't see 2019 - 2018 is the same - the 2019 OM's aren't always on the site, yet.

    I have. They said SeaRay shows 7’11” however the dealer is saying that is very conservative number & probably closer to 7’6”. They think SeaRays number is with boat dry (no fuel, gear, etc). Unfortunately the boat I’m about to pull trigger on is in Texas & I’m in Florida so it has to be shipped or I’d just have them bring it by my dock to see. I know from others the 17 SLX-W has about a 7’5” clearance and a 17 220SD has a 7’2” clearance from their towers. Frustrating as I don’t want to buy a $70,000 boat & find it doesn’t fit under my dock (8ft clearance)

    Fold the tower down, if necessary?

    Yes we could but I’d prefer not to if needed every time.
