A frame conversion


I've got a Valiant D520 with a decent sized A frame on it and I'm just wondering if anything can be done to convert it so that I can tow a wakeboarder or waterskiier from it. Currently it is just fixed to the deck with some quick release bolts so I'm really doubting it's strong enough. Is it practical to fix it to the deck more securely and then put 3 bolts or so through the transom and the frame on each side or am I just better off buying a beefier A frame designed for the purpose?

Thanks guys!

PS. This is what the frame looks nice (not my boat but close enough).

a frame

hello did you ever hear of turbo Schwing? Mounted on the transom you don't need to drill extra holes because you re using the engine mounting bolts. And skiing and towing will be a lot easyer. Really great item.

Just google at turbo swing
