Pullng toys with small RIB

Numpty question sorry.

My Avon 3.1m rib has been fitted with tow eyes in the transom.
Previous owner never used them and had no advice.

Teenager has just used her pocket money to buy a single seater ringo.

The line strength supplied with it says 750kg tow strength!

Am I gonna be ok pulling a single ringo with single adult on or am I going to rip the transom to pieces?

A bridle will help spread the load on your transom

Used to tow with 3.4 Avon with 25hp motor use a bridle like or make one I did, with size motor should be fine, biggest issue is to get on the plain with extra drag, need to get weight in the bow (sit spotter up there) watch for the line going slack or it swinging wide and dragging the stern across
