When Starting to Tow a Skier
When starting to tow a skier, the operator should:
- Start the engine after making sure that no one in the water is near the propeller.
- Start the boat slowly until the ski rope is tight. When the skier is ready and there is no traffic ahead, take off in a straight line with enough power to raise the skier out of the water. Once the skier is up, adjust the speed according to the signals given by the skier.
