I've got a 17' center console with a 50 hp merc that I plan on towing. The going thru locks part I suspect will be on the job training, pull it up tight to the swim grid or raft it alongside. What type & size of line to use is another consideration & how far back to let it ride on the prop wash wake, back side, front or on top. Even whether to tilt the outboard up or leave it down how will that effect how it tracks & how all these things combined will effect fuel economy. I like the comfort & stability of my Logic Marine over that of a rib, I need to start practicing towing it so that I can become confident taking it with me. The number of marinas on the UMR has made it easy to go places without having transportation to get to shore, but I plan on cruising & not staying in marinas so having a way to shore to shop for provisions & explore areas where I don't want to take the 38.

I don't like making plans for the day because the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.
