Imagine how long it'd take to pull you out and to get to speed. The turn around to pick up a fallen boarder would suck to.

We never tried it, but I'd always thought about giving a go behind my dads cruiser before he sold it. Don't think it'd be worth the trouble.

Used to ride behind a 26' Searay with cuddy cabin. That threw a nice wake. Turn around wasn't bad and getting a rider up and on plane wasn't too long. Even got a few newB's up.

Also we were just out doing a photo shoot and the guys were riding behind a big 34' Regal. Now that was a huge wake. Giant dbl ups. We would pick up the fallen riders with the chase boat however.

I took a run behind a 40+ footer this summer. I don't know the exact length. We tied the rope off of the tower on the flybridge. The wake was real weird kinda like a step-up. It was almost impossible to get any air because of a hump before the lip. Too bad because the wake was easily as tall as I was. I would drop out of sight of the chase boat. We probably could've made it better but was kind of an end of day lark after a couple of beers. Besides the twin diesels were killin' me after a few minutes!.........
