Semidisplacment + wakeboard + drone =

We used to wakeboard all the time when we had our bowrider. Never thought of doing this with the Tug . . .

I've pulled wakeboarders behind my 38' several times. Short tow at about 10-14kts, get them right on the first hump of the wake. One guy was good enough to through the tow rope back into the cockpit and just ride the wave. I think he was using a shorty surfboard.

Did it again with long tow and one wakeboard at about 20kts where he could jump, and it was a heck of a jump.

Might try it again with some barrels of water in cockpit to get a bigger wake.

Next time we'll have a gopro.

Fun!!

We were out late last year when we happened upon some friends on their stand-up jet skis. These guys actually travel around and compete in national competitions. They came by the boat and asked if we could put up a wake (we were traveling at our normal 8 knts at the time). Gave a big smile and said our boat can certainly put up a wake. We put her just off of plane and they had a blast clearing from one side to the other and doing flips. The wife and I had a blast watching, just wish we had a good camera with us.

My stew in Costa Rica used to wake surf behind the 90 footer we ran there. She could go for miles.
