Question about boats...
« on: December 29, 2011, 04:19:04 PM »

My parents live at the lake and have a couple boats, I just want to get opinions on learning to kneeboard behind them.  I would classify myself as a beginner starting to go intermediate.  I can do surface 360s and wake jumps (I have yet to fully clear it, but I think a lot of that is the board) but I feel I was somewhat limited by my board since it was a roto molded board.  I've remedied that problem because I just got a lowrider and a no-stretch rope.  Now I'm wondering about the boat.

I have 3 options that I ride behind.

1 - a jetski, I ride behind this when I want something that is easy to get out on the water
2 - a john boat with a 75 hp outboard.  Another quick access boat that I like to use more than the jetski because the wake is similar and being able to set a constant speed is nice, also it sips gas so I can bring one can of gas with me and ride all day long
3 - a Hurricane SunDeck 1900 OB 150HP outboard.  This one is more of a pain to get out and use, but it's really what I'm wondering about.  Is this one OK to learn on?  It has a telescoping ski pole but no tower.  I wonder how much I will be limited by the boats available to me.

Any opinions? Thanks in advance...

the deck boat is your best bet. jetskis give no pop to kneeboarders. you can do flips behind em, but not likely to learn flips behind em. john boat, same deal. trim that 150 up like a quarter of the way, bring out the family, and youl have a good size wake. as for towers, an extended pylon is fine, in all reality, if its not attached to the stupid loops on the back where your rope is in the water the whole time, it works fine. hope this helps. welcome to the forum.

That boat throws the biggest wake around 20-24MPH? then ride that one. Or build a ramp and put the ramp (kicker) in the water and get pulled by all Ski, john, and the sundeck!
