    Seadoo Spark towing ability

    I'm considering buying a Sea doo Spark in the next couple of weeks and just wondering if they are able tow a two person tube. I know the Yamaha vx110 can so I figured a spark should be able to even though it will probably get pulled around a bit. So are they suitable for towing say two people on a tube.

    This looks like a case of "I purchased a Toyota to tow my 3 tonne van"..

    If this is what you want to do, wrong ski for you.

    no they are not. They can tow the seaweed you run over that gets stuck in the pump.

    I love the idea of the small and nimble ski, but I still want to be able to tow a tube every now and then. I understand its a small ski but for the occasional tubing with 2 people on a tube is it suitable.

    Don't expect it to do wonders. It does tow ok 1 person but it does struggle.

    dekkerboy - I think you need a VXR or a GTI. Much better suited to towing a pair of butts on a tube.

    More importantly, you need to make sure of your state laws for boating. MANY states only allow you to tow 1 person with a PWC. Other require mirrors and a rear facing spotter.

    The Sparks do not come with mirrors so by law, here in Georgia they are illegal to tow a tube with.

    Tiny makes a very good point. In Canada you can only tow one with a 3 seater PWC. You need room for driver, spotter and the person being towed.

    We've done some towing with our sparks, the missus towed me and another friend in a double tube, all though I won't do it again because she didn't understand going so fast when turning sends the tube out double the speed was a little scary lol but tow the kids all the time
