Skylon pylon


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When I bought my boat ('86 'Bu), the guy inlcuded a Skylon with it. Does anybody have instructions or a good picture on how the strap loops around the point of the boat? Seems like everything I tried had the metal buckle rubbing up against the fiberglass of the bow. Additionally, how much tension should be on that cable? I searched the Skylon website and they don't post any instructions and did not respond to my email.

Another related question, do ya'll tow inflatables with the tower/pylon, or off a stern tow point?

Thanks a bunch,

for my flyhigh, there is a strap (almost like a webbing material) that loops through the bow eye, then you bring that up over the bow, and attached the strap with the buckle to that. If you don't have that webbing/strap, i could see how the buckle (if that is what you are trying to attach directly to the bow eye) would hit the fiberglass.

we don't pull tubes from the flyhigh, but i do know that others on this site do.

this shot shows the strap i am talking about. sorry its the only one i have:

Ours is the same as above. We do pull tubes from the pole, but nothing real heavy or too aggressively. For the tubing punishments we pull from the transom.
