Presumably towing it on a short line is the easiest way to get the ringo to your destination? it won't fit in the rib when inflated!
You might consider attaching a TurboSwing tow bar to your boat. I myself have a 60HP on a 15ft rib, with TurboSwing-XM selling at just GBP 276,- giving your boat so much more power and manouevrability, keeping the line well above the wake and clear from the coil.
Just have a look at the video 45 - 175 HP on our website. You will even see us tow a banana with 5 persons! You can even fully trim the engine, the tow bar comes up automatically.
When you go kneeboarding with the kids on an bridle, you know the line will go under in the wake, not so with the TurboSwing!
Feel free to contact me for any question
