What is the heaviest load you've pulled?
New to the PWC world but have had many boats in my life. What is the heaviest thing you've pulled at speed with a PWC? Has anyone ever tried to pull an other ski, like a tractor pull. That would be interesting... bob

I would think tractor pull type stunts would not good for the pump, much less very safe. We all have pulled stalled skis before and as long as you do not make a living doing this, you ski should be fine.
I had a shuttle craft that I loaded down with gear and people and it was all my Polaris SLT780 could do to move it above 35 mph. After 2 seasons, my pump looked like sh!t.

i watched a buddy pull a 30+ ft cruiser off a sand bar, first rope snapped hard!!
2nd rope was heavier, and it was amazing to see the boat drag across teh bar to deeper water. was not high and dry, but stuck hard enough there was NO chance of getting theboat off without a tow. it was listing on teh bar to one side, maybe 2 ft of water for a 3-4 ft draft.
boat was churning up a storm tryibg to help by pushing, sand and water was flying 20 ft in the air, was a sight to be seen, i bet the outdrives and water pumps were workin great after that
