  • 1 person VS 2 person tubes

    Looking at buying a tube during the off season for my boat. All adult fun, not really interested in multiple riders.

    How does a single person tube handle a 200 lb adult VS a 2 rider. Comfort wise?

    I'm 6'2" and 185#. I like the 2 person just for the bit of extra room. I really don't notice any ride quality difference though. I have 5 different tubes, my 2 man is the one that gets used most. This is it, bought right here on iboats. http://www.iboats.com/ENFORCER-60-D-...iew_id.1386194

      I have a three person deck style tube, (Gladiator), that we absolutely love. The nice thing about the three person and this style is it makes for great relaxing when anchored. And that, is comfort.

      I would stay away from the single tubes. They are ok for kids, but really too small for average sized adults IMO.

        The bigger tubes are much more stable and typically less bounce in my experience. Also they are good for lounging at the sandbar as Baylinerchuck said.
        Only bad thing is they are a pain to store if you have a small boat like we do.
