I've often considered skiing but never thought it'd be possible with a sib because the boat needs to jump on to plane almost instantaneously doesn't it where as sibs have a slight hesitation?
Getting up behind any boat is all about technique and practice, its true that more power makes it easier to get up, but my kids skied behind a MK2C FDutura with a 25hp OK.
Get the electric pump, its the best money you will ever spend. Make sure you top it up after its been in the water for at least 15 mins as well. With the floor at correct pressure, the boat is transformed.
Be carefull, its only 11psi you want, 11bar would make quite a mess
