I have been looking for a tow bar that doesn't take too much fabricating or cost and I found a boat for sale that had a towbar mounted similar to how I'd like and similar to my boat. I didn't know if anybody here could help me pinpoint this type of tow bar or not. I can't get the picture to upload because of the file size .

The bar mounts underneath the lounge seat in the back, basically where the lounge seat brackets are. And it runs under the seat and then curvers up just on the outside of the lounge seat. And has the eye connector there.

The link to the video is https://youtu.be/DHeSQWqp4Ds and it shows the tow bar shortly into the video after he looks over the motor. I just don't have any idea as to what brand it is.

I have a Crest and have a tow bar just like the one in the video.  It probably custom made for Crest or by Crest.  Have you checked with a Crest dealer?

I got in contact with a local one but didn't get any resolution from that. So it came on yours when you bought it? I guess it wouldn't have a model number or anything on it then.

Yes, it was on the boat when I bought it.  Mine is a 2001 and I have a friend with a 1997 with the same bar.  Mine is not installed right now and I can take pictures and measurements this weekend if you want.

Yea don't go out of your way to but if you have a free moment that would be great. And see if on it there are any markings or numbers that might help me find out which one it is. Thank you again.

Pictures are attached.  Hope they help.  I took my off because my current engine will not trim up all the way with it on.  If you have one made, be sure to look at that measurement.  Mine mounted under the frame in the engine compartment.  The measurements are 41" wide, ~27' deep and ~16" high.

So it mounted under the lounge seat on the back? Or down at the floor of the pontoon boat? I appreciate you taking the time to take pictures of it.

On the bottom side of the lounge seat frame.  I should be able to get a picture tomorrow.

You should be able to see the 3 bolt holes on each side.  The skibar was fastened on the bottom side of the seat tubing.
