    tow rope

    Hey all,

    What do I need on the back of the waveraider 1100 to hook up a tow rope,, The SeaDoo and Polaris have the hook,, the Yamaha has a hole on each side.

    thanks

    excellent idea adding the sheetmetal for added support/strength. It helps distribute the force over a larger area.

    Ya talking about the 2 holes on the very rear floor of the pwc? (usually used as a tie down)

    I believe the answer to your question is no.

    I've seen people tie off a rope to the grab handle, but i can't recommend that. (at the very least some type of swivel to increase rope life should be attached to the grab handle first... but still wouldn't recommend)

    Not to mention the 1100 raider is a 2 seater (i assume yours is) which makes it commonly illegal to tow behind it; if your's is 3 seater disregard.

    Yea,, I can not do the rope in the grab handle,,

    I may be wrong but texas laws states a spotter OR the 4inch mirrors when towing?

    is this a fine line law or???


    I may try to make up a sling to go into those holes.

    I like the bolt on tow hook but have not found one yet,,

    Thanks
