Towing an inflatable behind the RIB.

Just got a fun-looking inflatable "Bodyglove" for the kids to ride on behind the boat.

It looks like a cross between a rubber-dinghy & a jet-ski about 8 foot long. It has a strong rubber towing point on the bow, but I'm not sure where to tie it on to the speed boat?

I know about keeping the rope long for obvious reasons, but any other tips would be much
appreciated. Thanks, Ivan

'Bodyglove' are a company, primarilly a wetsuit manufacturer, not a model.

Is this the 'towable' you're referring to? http://www.bodyglove.com/products_de...roduct_id=9217
