    How many people can you pull on a tube behind a jet ski?

    Hey guys, i've been searching all over the place but i cant seem to find the answer. I got a 3 seater jet-ski, the Yamaha FX SVHO. I was wondering how many people i can pull behind it legally? Because the ski is a 3 seater, does it mean i can only have 1 person on the tube, or can i have 2 - 3 people on the tube? This is for colorado.

    thanks in advance

    One. One driver...one spotter and one in the water. The total amount of people involved cannot exceed what the watercraft is rated for in passengers. So a 2 person ski cannot legally tow.

    Here in Tennessee it could be 1 on the ski and 2 one the tube (with a 3 seater), as you dont have to have a spotter if you have mirrors.....

    VA rules are: 2 seater - 1 person driving, 1 person in tow if ski has at least one mirror; 3 seater - 1 person driving with 2 people in tow if ski has at least one mirror or 1 person driving, 1 person as spotter, and 1 person in tow if no mirrors are equiped.

    So in short if you have mirrors 2

    As many as you can fit on the tube and keep it above the waterline here, I regularly pull 2, 3 or 4 (depending on how many of the neighbors have their kids at the lake that weekend) behind my FZS no problem.
