So here's the gist of it.. my wife wanted to get a towable tube for our daughters to ride in, so we looked online and found the one we wanted to get.
Its a 2 person towable tube, how it would work since my daughters are only 4 & 6 years old, is that my wife will be in the tube with one of my daughters.. my question is, is this too much weight for my setup? (not calling my wife fat btw)..
The total weight will be around 170lbs inside the tube with my wife and 1 kid..
I don't need to go fast.. just let them enjoy the ride.. but I also need to be able to get onto a plane for that to work.
Here's my setup: Salter Mountaineer 360 (12'6" length), aluminum floor, tow hooks installed into transom and a new Mercury 20hp 4-stroke with the stock 10P prop installed. I have a spare 9P prop also.
I'll have 2 adults in the boat, myself driving and another at the bow to keep the nose down.
Oh and here's the towable we picked up...
