Ok, here is the "Big Pull 2008". 5 wakeboarders, 4 skiers.
It took us 5 tries to all get up, but we did it!




We have video also, just lack the knowledge on how to post it!

Because we did 8 two years ago, and had to better ourselves!

The boat owner made up 3 harness', using cable park handles. None off the tower, all off the transom "eyes" and pylon.
By the way, we're at Bull Shoals Lake, Missouri.

Very cool! The most I've ever pulled was 6 from a 18' jet boat with a 454.

Just curious, what engine does your X2 have, MCX or the LY6?

in our ski show we pull 11-12 on our nautique 196 with a 330hp motor. Thats a little boat too.

The ski show i am part of used to pull 12 from the eye hooks in the back, but they started to pull out because they are not designed to have stress loaded on them in that direction. They are built for lifting the boat up and not for pulling. The dealer told us to pull from the pylon all the time.

Back in the day @ our cabin they (I was to young) did 13 skiers behind our neighbors Hydrodyne Twin Rig..... Yeah they are into show skiing... My dad took our pontoon & ran around the lake to pick up fallen skiers & equipment.... Next time I am up there I will ask if they have any pics from that.

Hey Mark, looks like we'll have to bump it up a bit! These guys are making us look bad!

No problem, good stuff all the way around. Good thing we didn't start out with 13, we would have no where to go! It's been fun for all involved, that's the main thing. Thanks so much for helping with your boat Lauri and Bill for his boat. One thing is certain, we need the help to pick up riders to keep it safe for all involved--chase boats are a must.

I really think we can get 10 next year. In 06 the 9 popped right out of the water, quickly! This year was tougher, I think becuase of overall weight... we had more adult riders and our boat was heavier (X2 vs X1 w/same engine). I would like to pull the 10 evening of the fireworks display in '09--if we can get the right crew together that evening. fyi Lauri... We'll be there a week earlier next year as the cabins were full first two weeks in July.

Question for Danny, I was thinking 4 from the pylon, 3 from each eye hook. What do you think? We had no problem with the eye hooks at 3 each this year. The new X2 pylon does not extend all the way to the boat floor which was a concern for strength, although probably unwarranted.

Would like to see what the other big pulls out there look like if you guys have pics. I'm uploading (I think) pics from our '05 (7 people) and '06 (8 people) pulls so you can see our progression compared to this year. You can see all the different ropes we used in '05--that wasn't so bad with only 7. The harness' were a must keeping things organized this year when we had someone fall in the beginning (keeping it all straight) & it's nice keeping everyone at relatively the same length.

Wish we could make it back again this year!

Try#2... 05, 06 & 08 respectively. I had to dumb the pics down pretty good to make it work.

Nice, but if it were my boat I would have told the 9 suckas to get in the boat and I would have had a nice wake all to myself!

Trust me. We had plenty of time with that boat full of people and ballast doing TONS of wakeboarding! This is just something we do at least once every time we go up there.
