The Big Pull

After 1/2 a day of skiing and partying we decided to do a big pull.

Here is the boat and skiers.

Pretty cool...wake looks washy on the port side...J/K.

That could have something to do with the driver being very large to say the least..... i don't know for sure though

We did 5 - all on one ski - last year behind our RLXi. The funny thing was that two that usually ski behind an i/o got up every time. They were used to the drag out of the hole. The two that are newer skiers that were used to a DD really struggled. I used to slalom behind a 18 horse Johnson that would drag you half way around the lake before you got up, so I was used to it. Surprising how much drag just 5 skiers put on a boat.

need to see a picture of this arrangement.

edit: whoops, I'm guessing you mean they were all on their own single/slalom ski. at first I read it as five people somehow all standing on one ski together.

When I was about 13 we did 7 in a beach start behind a Nautique. I seem to remember 6 of us got up and we bent the pylon. The tough part was figuring out how much slack to hold so you didn't get killed but the boat had some speed.

Yeah, that SS has the advantage of an 8.1L, no extra boat would be necessary. There is no replacement for displacement. :)

Were going to try 20 next year but that will need a 2 boat pull.
