Ribeye A600 skiing

Hi, can anyone advise on fitting a ski pulling hook to the A-frame on a Ribeye A600 ? Any problems in advance etc and stockists, I've tried Ribeye site but nothing to see out of office hours. Thanks

I wouldn't personally use the A frame to attach a skier to, if it's anything like my A frame it wouldn't take the strain.

Stainless eye bolts in the transom either side of the engine with a floating cradle harness

Hi

I anchor mine in the boat and just use a short link on the "A" frame to keep the line above the engine. This means there's very little load on the "A" frame.

You can see the setup about 7 minutes in.......
