Ski Line Placing

Heylo once again fellow RIB users lol. THis post is mostly for people who do watersports. I was wondering what you attach the ski/tube line to? do you have a ski pylon or just the 2 bolted in hooks on either side of the engine? Thanks

two hooks on back for me but only cos I don't have a ski pole. Ski poles obviouly raise the height on the line making it easier to get out of the water and give you more freedom to jump when wakeboarding.

on my ribcraft there is a ski eye at the top of the A frame. It helps beginner waterskiing/wakeboarding/kneeboard etc because of the upward pull when starting. It also is good for more experienced riders as it helps when jumping the wakes. It's still not as high as the full on wakeboard towers but is close enough for recreational use. It also seems to help keep the rope well clear of the prop when stationary. Saying that 2 hooks works fine but if your having a new boat with an A-fram you may as well go whole hog and get them to put a tow point on top.
