is towing wakeboarders wrong in anyway for the engine?
i have a gp1300r and i want to know if it is wrong or bad for the ski's health if i was towing wakeboarders or skiers

Its NOT legal or safe to tow with a '2-seater'.You need a pilot,flagger on the ski AND it must be a 3 seater so you can ride all 3 people at once.

I would also not pull anyone because of wear to the pump parts.

i pull wakeboarders all the time with my 1300. in north carolina im not sure if you need a spotter on a jet ski, but im pretty sure you have to have one with a boat (flags not required). i havnt seen any damage due to pulling people, ive even pulled 2 tubes at once with it with no problems

I literally do it for an hour every time out. Easy out of the hole to prevent cavitation. Learn to feather the throttle.
(In Missouri you don't need a spotter as long as you have 4"X8" convex mirror)

I pull wakeboarders and tubes with my SUV 1200, it has always ran well. I even had it proped to help with the hole shot for towing. It is a four seater so I am legal with this and I do use a spotter.

in ga has to be a 3 seater driver spotter room for the 3rd person i have done it with no damage just dont force it from a dead start takes a lot to get the person out of the water , well if they skiing.
