I have a 2014 A24 and the tower feels a bit loose. It's not terrible, and I only notice it when I push at the base specifically, and then were talking millimeters. The first time I thought something was odd was going over chop and it kinda rattled. I took a look underneath and on the one side all three nuts were flush. On the other side two of the three were flush, but the middle one was about a quarter inch off. None of the nuts can be hand tightened or loosened, and I can't really maneuver any tools up in there at the moment.Here are my options.

1. Don't worry about it ask the dealership to check it out at the next oil change. 2. Stop using the tower, but use the boat normally until next oil change and have them look at it. 3. Stop using boat immediately and have someone look at it.

I've scoured the internet and cannot find anything on Axis boats and loose tower.Also, I'm new to this boat, so I don't know what the history is and if this has been going on for a long time or not.

I definitely recommend fixing this as quick as possible. The tower of my 2014 A22 came loose and I didn't notice immediately. I was rewarded with stress cracks in the gelcoat right below the tower base. Since then I have the dealer check the nuts at every service.
I agree it is a pain to get tools in there but it has to be done. Either by yourself or the dealer. The best tool to do it is one of these. You just put them on the nut and then don't have to rearrange it: Image
