Has anyone ever tried this? Obviously not gonna be the most ideal riding situation, but I can see how this could work with someplace with rails. I couldn't find anything when I searched for it on ww.

I don't think they are in production anymore. If you look at their latest news, you'll see that there hasn't been any updates since Feb 2007.

Just go to amazon and add it to the cart. It looks like there for sale.

How would you not pull the back of that ski around when you cut in and out? There is no way it could keep a continuous straight line. I don't even think you would have to cut out that hard to pull it around.

I know a few guys that cut hard enough you can feel them pulling when you are in a full size boat.

Agreed - check out the pics on the Amazon listing. The Boto is always turning in every pic, like the rider is having to guide it away from the line to prevent it being pulled over.

You can get a pretty deecent boat for $14k

It likely gets pulled around similar to a jet ski.

Worthwhile for someone who wants to ride, sometimes it's hard to find a second, and even further a third.

Just think, instead of jet skiers jumping the wake, it can be boto riders
