Got some speed results with a full boat today.With 6 adults and 2 kids (1250 pounds), the boat could not get up on plane and the best speed was 16MPH plowing through the water like a typical pontoon boat. Follow WhmSoft's board vlrFilter, Multifunction Audio Filter with Remote Control on Pinterest.
Jimrs makes a really good, and valid point, but listen to this logic.My close friends' old boat ( 1992 Sea Ray 17' with 135hp. Don't you guys know about the bridles with the pulley on them?That was always the way we pulled skiers back in the olden days. In real life, on a runabout, the outboard pushes the transom, the transom pulls the skier and the boat is just along for the ride. It is a 2008 Sun Tracker 21 foot, signature series Party Barge with the Mercury 90HP four cycle outboard. Your prop should do fine if you are going to have a boat load of folks or plan on doing tubing or skiing but with proper prop and correct use of trim boat can go much faster. TurboSwing's patented technology elevates the tow rope above the wake, provides smooth consistent pulls and can improve towing power up to 20 horsepower.
It feels like any other pontoon up to about 23mph then it starts to plane and accelarates even quicker to top speed. The boat has factory NV strakes on the logs, changing room, sink in the console and factroy ski tow bar.
Noted that you have a 4 stroke, mine is a 2 stroke, will that same size prop work just as well on my 2 as it does on your 4? Noted that you have a 4 stroke, mine is a 2 stroke, will that same size prop work just as well on my 2 as it does on your 4?Sorry.


It is a great boat but it will take a little time behind the wheel to get the most out of it. This innovative system features a stainless steel tow bar with mounting clamps that attach directly to your existing outboard motor bracket, encircling the outboard engine(s). What we tubed with was the Great Mable ( the 3 person tube ) but with 2 people on it at a time. My friend up on Keystone does the same thing with his pontoon, using the stern lift rings.The only place we ever used to see pylons back then were on inboard ski boats like the Master Crafts and we understood it was because the transom was not built to handle a load like one with an outboard. Regardless I am cool with its performance overall and I just thought I would pass the informationmation along. A tow rope can be quickly affixed to a pulley on the tow bar which enables the rope to smoothly travel from side to side resulting in less effort and better performance for those in tow and greater stability and maneuverability of the boat. We needed the bigger tube so that we had more handles to hang on, because the way we like to ride, has been known to leave bruises, break normal ski ropes, and even pull the ski tow connector (not a bar) out of the back end of the boat. In real life, on a runabout, the outboard pushes the transom, the transom pulls the skier and the boat is just along for the ride.
You can clearly tell when the boat gets up on plane around 23MPH and it really cruises nicely at 25MPH.
I still have not seen a faster pontoon on the lake and I have had several folks ask me, how its as fast as it is.
TurboSwing is a perfect way to enjoy towed watersports when a wakeboard tower is not an option.
So that tube with me and my buddy on it, ( total weight, close to 400 lbs ) would bog down that boat tremendously in the corners, unless she (my buddies wife) had us going pretty fast so that we would skip accross more than be pulled.


If he was hooked to the back and swings out around the boat, while in a turn and keeps pulling he can not only pass the boat but turn the boat around and go the other way the steering has very little effect unless it has a big, big motor. Yet that very same boat, on the very same day most often, would pull both of us skiing with absolutely no problems, even starting out, with my buddy on slalom (usually takes more effort to get up).
I'm not trying to argue here it's just that a tube with 2 or 3 will have less pull than a 200lb+ on a ski starting out.

I'm convinced that all you really need the hp for when pulling a skier is to get them up, and then for speed. The tube sits down in the water with people on it, where as skis, knee boards, and wake boards all skim accross the water.
We have been in business for 7 years selling only high quality inflatable boats and accessories. All Seamax boats are registered with Transport Canada and recognized by Coast Guard & DMV Office for boat license. Beside using solid birch plywood to build transom, we develop a new standard called Transom Stabilizer Reinforcement (TSR).
