    I tow 4 person tubes all the time. I have the Aquaglide airport, Airhead Stingray Quad and Airhead Viper Quad. I tow the Viper Quad (4 people on it) with two passengers on my ski (I didn't know it was illegal). Basically 7 people and the back end dip alot but power no problem (of course). Gas milage is 3 miles per gallon towing so bring alot of gas.

    yes, and it 6100 lb strength rope will fit through it.

    And start saving for a new prop once you've sufficiently burned the old one. That's the problem with towing, it generally introduces cavitation and that ultimately burns the prop. More resistance, more cavitation.

    Sweet, thanks. I'll just be towing a wakeboarder or a two person tube.

    How does a prop/impeller in our case burn up?
