    Towing Tubers with a GTR215

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm looking into buying the 3-man SeaDoo R3 tube to tow behind my 2013 GTR215. Any advice?

    The owners manual doesn't give any direction to max weight you can tow off the rear center eyelet. I wasn't planning on buying a post if I can just do it off the eyelet. Does anyone have experience towing or using the R3 tube? Just wondering how long of a rope I needed, how much weight the GTR215 can tow off the eyelet (manual says 250 lbs for post, I assume the eyelet can handle way more), and if anyone has had any problems with the R3 tube?

    Thanks!

    Never heard of a tow hook breaking on a dooo..
    Tow as much weight as you want with 215hp...

    It's most likely not "legal" to tow more than one rider at a time but the machine will have no problem doing so.

    Nice, does anyone know the law in Florida? I haven't found anything saying you cant tow more than one person as long as you have a spotter/wide view mirrors.

    If your float should happen to sink there needs to be enough room on your ski for whom ever your pulling..
    I was told that while getting some tickets for wot in a no wot zone... figured i'd ask questions since I was paying for it anyways...

    Fla law states that total persons has to meet capacity of machine, pwc must have a spotter. So on a 3 seater driver+spotter+1 person on tube woild be your limit. I have not seen this in writeing but I got stopped last year. Good thing the 4 person capacity is still on the SUV the young FWC officer was certain 3 person pwc was the biggest ever made.
