    Question Bow Line

    Just wondering what you guys do with your bow line while riding? I kind of pull my around the front and lay it in the footwell.

    Leaving any type of rope/line attached to your ski is just asking for it to end up in your pump intake wrapped around your prop shaft. Always store all rope/lines in your storage compartment befor you go for a ride.

    +1...how much time are you really saving vs. the risk of having it sucked into the pump.

    I use a bungee line around one of the hand grips. I still keep rope in the hood compartment incase a tow is needed.

    X2 bungee. I got some nice ones from the dollar store with caribiners (snap-clips) on both ends - they're long enough to use for docking, even rafting both machines together, short enough that they don't get in the way even if left in place, and super convenient for latching to dock rings.

    I carry 2 per machine, one for the bow and one for the stern.

    I wouldn't Trust them in gale force winds, but for 95% of the time they've been great.

    When we're out riding long distance/time we just unclip them and store one in the glove box and the other in the nose or under the seat.

    I'm with Oshawapilot, I bought a containter full of different length marine bungee cords at Wal Mart for $10 and they're great. I keep one in the glove box, just hook it to the tow hook while still sitting on the ski, then clip it to the dock.
