Nice vid!

How do you get on towing a wakeboard behind a SIB? On the last part of the video it looks like it's only you in the boat with a wakeboarder behind, do you find it's hard to get the bow down when pulling the boarder out of the water?

The boat tows really good, In the video i had a 25hp mariner and it would tow handy enough, i got a 40hp mariner this year and it made a huge difference, I was able to wakeboard with 4people in the boat no prob. even with the 25hp you would get up, i just put the gear forward and the nose goes down nice. but again the 40hp make life alot easier, i also tow one of those tubes and its scary how fast you go on the turns, Im going out agin thursday and i will get some new shots of the tube and wakeboard eith the new engine.

I have added another video of my brother wakeboarding behind the 40hp, Its rough as i only through it together this morning...there was 3 of us in the boat. the video is fairly jumpy but you get the idea and she was only around 1/2-3/4 throttle

Again the videos are at the bottom, you will see the wakeboarding one at the very end, ENJOY!
