    Pulling a tube with an SL750?

    Any thoughts on pulling a tube or skier with an SL750? Can the tie down hole in the aft deck take the stress or is there a better way to attach a tow rope?

    Most states won't allow a 2 seater for pulling tubes.

    You need enough room on the ski for everyone on board in case of an emergency.

    1 driver

    1 spotter

    1 tuber


    Check your local laws as some states do allow it.

    Thanks. I have mirrors. That's good in Kansas. JUst wondering about power, wear & tear and the best way to attach to the ski.

    Be very careful pulling a tube and loading the motor too hard. Some people who do a lot of watersports with skis will actually de-pitch the prop some to ease up on the extra load of the tube, skis, board, etc....
