Inflatable fun

Hi,

I am thinking about purchasing a Jobe inflatable ring for some wet and wild fun behind our rib. Is there any useful information I should know about towing these things i.e trim settings etc? Obviously not gonna be flat out but that will depend on how the kids have been behaving!

What you get is dependant on the age of the kids.. We bought a shark, great fun, but when they fall off, neither can get back on..



So.. its turn the rib around, get them out, recover the shark, get them back on, let the line out slowly.. etc.. Gonna see about getting a Jobe tribal for the rest of this year, and part of next.. Least they can pull themselves back onto that..
