A couple guys that are on the wakeskating.com forums had a john boat with a mini tower that looks like a killer idea. I pm'd Loller and he told me that Bromfutter and his dad built the tower out of electrical conduit and just welded the pipes together.
Here's what Bromfutter told me about it
the tower is just made from electrical conduit, its just galvanized metal tubes. I got them from Lowe's and just bent them and shaped them how i wanted then welded it all together. It might be a little expensive if you get a fab shop to do it for you though. As far as mounting it to the boat i just made L brackets that welded to the bottom of the tower and rested against the insides of the boat and then drilled a hole threw the bracket and boat and bolted it together.

you can see the bracket at bolt here at the 13sec. mark :http://www.alliancewake.com/skate/early-morning-with-frye-and-chase/

good luck with the build, and keep in mind not to build it too tall or it will make your boat harder to drive while someone is cutting around behind it.
Thanks for the info guys. Now I need to convince my dad to let me put a mini-tower on the flat bottom "fishing" john-boat he just bought. ;)
