    New guy with a question about yamaha SUV

    I've only been to this site a couple of times, and I'm not sure where to post this question, so please excuse the faux pas if this is the wrong place. Anyway, can a Yamaha 1200 SUV serve as a tow vehicle for recreational slalom skiing? I weigh about 180 and use a double booted ski, so I can't leg drag, and at 48, my back is not as strong as it used to be. Will the SUV be able to yank me up?

    The reason I ask is that my current housing situation only allows for boats that fit in a small garage. I was thinking maybe a seadoo speedster, or the SUV. Thanks.

    Yes you will have no problem using the suv as a tow vehicle. It is a big ski but it has got a 1200 engine to help it move Which i think is around 130hp

    Plenty of pulling power. To get the best towing, consider getting a different impeller designed for towing.

    Carl at Long Island racing is a good source of information on impellers.
