sorry Ms Patriyatch i am a mechanic. I have not ever had the chance to raft up with other boats. Yes its a small boat with my great boss maybe in a yr or so it will grow. One doesnt make a fortune as a mechanic exspecially here in SC. I guess i should have just called Mrs Wigginout's better half and asked him. I wanted a few opinons on what every one thought. Glad you did touch the one question i didnt ask. I want to enjoy my time on the lake. I dont think many people try skiing behind a 30 ft plus boat. I allready figured i needed at least 4 lines and fenders just length was my bigest question . Looks like its another one of thoose deals if you have more then needed your better off. Thank you very much Mrs Wigginout.
