We had the 4.2m Futura with a 50hp and that was ok for an adult waterskier, but too big/ heavy to put in the boot - so you might as well trailer a RIB as a SIB (which we now do !).

I have towed and have been towed on a wakeboard by my 380 Aerotec with a mariner 25. You have to use full throttle to get them up, but once up, you can back off to about half throttle. I am not exactly small at 6ft 4 and 16 stone! I mainly tow my 12 year old daughter.

OK, wake boarding would do me! Will see how I go with the RIB over the next month. If the family don't like it I may cash it in and go down the 380 route!
