Small little video

Small video from my phone that I thought I'd upload to youtube. We had the tender in tow which put us on edge but it performed and we made it with out incident.

Providence Channel W/ Tender under tow - YouTube

And a little compilation.

Nice dinghy!
Try RAINX on the windshield once a month or so and never need the wipers again.

Nice video. I'm getting ready to start towing a 13' Boston Whaler Super Sport model so I have some questions if you don't mind.

How fast do you tow?
How long is your tow line?
What size line do you tow with?
Do you tow with the motor up or down?
If the motor is down, is it secured in a straight position?

Thanks,

GFC

What size line do you tow with?Homestly not sure, but were going get one made of Amsteel to use as a primary and use the current one as a back up.
Do you tow with the motor up or down? Up.
If the motor is down, is it secured in a straight position?

It's funny we were talking about how we needed to get some when we were taking spray, now that you bring it up I gotta go get some. Were actually have new wiper blades and arms installed right now, so were going try and use both since they are pretty fans and rather use them every once and awhile weather them sit unused and seize up.
