    riding 2 people on SL 750

    Ok I have been riding my sl 750 quite a bit lately but only by myself. I took my fiance out today it was horrible the ride quality just sucked. I had the trim pointed down it seemed to best setting. We could only do about 30-35 we be up and down a lot. Does any have any advice to help with the ride?

    Although it is a 2 seater it is only really a 1 seater. If you have to ride 2 up the driver must trim down and put their feet forward in the foot wells. This balances the weight a little. Start off with a quick take off so that the boat planes and don't move the trim too far up. Leaving it a little down will stop the bouncing. good luck.

    Once you're up on plane they may help but initially they do nothing.

    They do help, but not much.

    The SL hull isn't great for 2 up riding, sorry.

    The SLT is a 3 seater that works with 2 fairly well. Even if you had one,It's so much more fun with 2 skis. Even if you had a brand new couch. And she would feel more comfy on a 3 seater even buy herself.

    I had good luck with adding some racing sponsons like the beach house brand and a splash guard, I was out yesterday with mine in Galveston Bay with lots of rollers and my wife and if had a real smooth and dry ride
