    Really tough to find a used one. Give Tony a call at fishing boats unlimited as hes done many of the guys tower here on this forum.

    Get a Pacific Yacht towers with controls. These boats look bad ass with them. Controls is a game changer and you will be happy in the long run. If you get just a hoop or a tower not set up for controls, after a year of fishing it I guarantee you will be wishing you had them.

    Thank you both for the response! I’ll definitely keep that in mind.. I really love the idea of full controls up top, and will eventually do so. My budget just doesn’t allow for that quite yet.. but definitely going to happen.

    Talk to Tom (towerfab). He built my tower, and many others. I haven't heard a negative thing about his work, and his shop is in Ontario. Seeing that you are in Calimesa, it's not too far away. Look up usmc Reyes. Tim did the tower and bait tank on his Parker. Came out sweet too!

    2x on Tony at Fishing Boats Unltd in Costa Mesa. My old 2120 had a hoop with an ice chest for a seat. I used my AP remote to steer from up top. That being said my new 2320 has full controls up top and I love it. ( I still have an ice chest seat)
    If cost is an issue Tony can build you a hoop with a back rest and seat (or use ice chest) and he can set it up to add a console and controls later.

    May I respectfully ask whats your budget? That may also determine who we recommend.

    Yes, controls up top are really nice but can get very pricy . To share, my tower cost 6500 with the fiberglass box for controls. Controls and everything on tower put me at 13-14k total.

    I once had a belly hoop made with added rod holders for my previous Parker and that came out to around 2800

    Just giving some ideas.

    Thanks,
    Billy. I actually just picked up a hoop from a fellow Bd’er at a great price. It’s going to fit the top perfectly. As for seating, I was planning on just using the 160qt cooler. The hoop appears to have had controls at one point (at least it looks like it may have had the dash). I will be reaching out to Tony or Tom (possibly both) to inquire about adding about 20 rod holders to the boat/tower.

    My budget for December is $0 however, come January (bonus check) my budget will be substantially more. I’ll keep you all posted on what I end up doing. I’m really enjoying adding more stuff to the boat one by one. However, I am still missing the most important item, BAIT TANK!! I am going to be getting the 65gal from Mark at PE. I think I might enjoy upgrading the boat more than fishing it..... maybe not

    I had a 1/2 tower from a Tom for a 2320 and had one from Tony with full tower & control for a newer 2320 and I can tell you Tony’s quality and design is much better and the pipe are much bigger.

    Just got mine back a few weeks ago from West Coast Marine and i believe fishing boats unlimited did it. I have the 123 q engel cooler as a seat. 2800 worth every penny.
