    The 2 seaters in the USA by law cannot tow a tube because you need a driver, a spotter and room for the person who is on the tube. Thats why they don't have a tie down on the rear of the ski.

    State law prevails. In Missouri you can tow with one person as long as you have at least a 4 X 8" mirror
    (I have a removable mirror on my hood)
    Most states do not allow this

    Look into your boating regulations. Most states require a vessel to hold:
    Pilot
    flagger
    rider (tuber,skier etc...)

    NC boating regulations also state that you do not have to have a spotter as long as you have a mirror on the ski.

    Yes you can to the original question. In fact, you will do it a whole lot faster with these mods.

    Most impellers recommended on this forum are for best all around performance, or for best top speed.

    If you want more pulling power, you may have to depitch your impeller to get a better bite on the water or get a different style of impeller all together that is better for towing. Speak with a pro impeller tuner about this if towing is a major agenda for you.
