The weather is warm, the ladies are in bikinis, and the lake is calling you. Unfortunately, riding the water is out of the question because you can’t find anyone to pilot the boat, and solo water skiing isn’t possible… or is it? The Skier Controlled Tow Boat is the perfect way to transform skiing into a one-man operation.
A six-control button panel puts you in charge of a nearly 8′-long boat with a three-cylinder, two-stroke 70 horsepower engine with jet pump and axial flow propulsion, and an automatic bilge pump keeps the water out of the vessel. The jet propulsion engine makes worrying about the prop a thing of the past, and you don’t have to worry about the boat roaring off into the sunset without you because it stops automatically when you let go of the handle.
- Control panel lets you start, turn, accelerate, decelerate, or stop the vessel with slight thumb movements.
- Generates speeds up to 40 MPH and creates wakes for jumps and other tricks.
- Six-gallon gas tank
- 40 foot long tow rope
- Made from durable fiberglass and molded plastic
- 94 1/2″ L x 41 1/2″ W x 29″ H. (375 lbs.)
