  • Quick question here to attach tow rope for boards, tubes, etc...

    I am wondering if the eyes that I use for the trailer tie-downs are sufficient for pulling tubes. I have never pulled skiers or tubes or boards so I have no idea if I need something more substantial... There is one on each side. I am only looking to drag grandkids around, not adults. Any other suggestions?

    You can buy a strap that connects to the 2 eyes and gives you a centered attachment point for the tube/skier tow line. Usually he straps have a float ball in them to keep the line away from the propeller, etc.

    more tubing than skiing would be good with that boat.

        You should be able to use them but like they said they make a v shaped rope.for that.
