    Towing a PWC - 1200XLT 800GPR

    Hi

    I also belong to the Sea Ray owners board and the question has come up several times about boat owners towing their PWC. I have always just towed someone with my PWC if they broke down and not thought anything about this. Are there some things to look out for and do to prevent water ingestion while doing from a boat or other PWC?

    Thanks

    Bolts.

    I have some similar I got at a local NAPA if I remember right. They use them for clamping radiator hoses during maintenance

    A quick tip for people who tow and use either clamps to shut-off the lines. Put some sort of string wth a piece of bright colored material or plastic on the other end, When you clamp off the line, let the "flag" hang out from under the seat so you see it when you get on your ski. Hopefully it will make you remember that you have the cooling shut off and you won't burn it up.

    Good idea, but better still put your lanyard inside the hull.

    That would do it - just depends how clean you keep your hull .
