    Hatch and Seat Straps

    Hey Guys,
    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience flipping a ski in the ocean? I do a lot of tow outs with it and we are pretty rough on the ski. I noticed these straps

    Some people say when it flips, the seats can come off pretty easy and its like instant-sink right there. and obviously that would suck.. Just wondering if you guys have any experience with another brand or these.

    Thanks!

    I have had the rear seat come off my fxho in the surf.
    Many of the surf rescue skis are fitted with straps.
    You can search HSA straps

    I had a tow line and a set pop off a ski at the same time, it flipped and filled with water. I did not know the seat wasn't still on and when i flipped it over...you can guess...it filled with water completely....but still did not sink. Ive never see seats randomly come off, but oyu can never be too safe i guess.

    I imagine if you are doing tow outs on a skis its either a HO or SHO, a ride plate would make a difference as well as sponsons for towing...consider it

    Yeah, I am using a FXHO. What does a ride-plate do exactly? Also, I know beach launches aren't the best but we might me launching it in some pretty remote places and might have to launch on sand. What would be the best way to do so? Thanks!!

    ryan you should look into getting a jetlift cart. I just ordered one for doing beach launches in mex and hard to reach spots. Pricey, but it will last a lifetime.
