    Inflatables

    I am looking to get an inflatable to tow behind my Spark 3 up, will it pull one or two people on an inflatable?
    I just purchase my first PWC and have not rode it yet. I am looking to ride the kids on the tow behinds.
    Which one do you like?

    I think as long as all 3 passengers are under or close to the weight rating of the ski it'll pull the tube ok.
    Check out Airhead tubes

    It will easily pull two adults, I have pulled up to four children on a large flat inflatable with ease We have no restrictions here saying that you need an observer so I was alone on my 2UP 90hp.

    Not sure of the rules in Louisiana, but in Texas the people in the towable are counted as passengers. Thus a 3-passenger PWC could have 1 riding, and 2 being towed (if you have mirrors); or 2 riding, and 1 in tow. You might check the local laws.

    Spark will comfortably pull two adults on a tube.

    I have had 100kg wakeboarders, skiiers and knee boarders behind mine and it works a treat. Drop the VTS to the lowest point as it makes it very grippy and keeps the nose down.

    demon8991, Thanks for the reply... Good thing I ordered the VTS for the Spark. I should have it for next week.

    I have a 2up 90hp and we towed my brother who was on a kneeboard while there were 2 of us on the ski (need an observer where we are) and it was fine.
    I agree that trim makes towing a LOT easier. Trim it all the way down.

    As Boudin has stated many states require an observer and a seat position for each person being towed. Therefore if you have a three capacity PWC, you can only legally tow one person. Will it tow more? Sure. Is it legal, ????? I think LA allows a huge rear convex mirrior to be used however. Best to check with your state.
