Default Tube towing bridle

I need to locate a tow rope bridle so my daughter can go tubing before she shoots me (if I can keep the boat running that long). With the twins and bracket I need one at least 16' long eye to eye. Problem is the only ones I've seen so far are only 12', which would leave it rubbing on the motor cowls pretty tight.

Anyone know where I might be able to locate a longer one?

Thanks - Greg

Just get the short one, buy 20ft of nylon tow rope, and rebuild it w/ the new line.

I have a new in the package Tow Devil, but it only has 8ft of cable. It uses 1/4" cable, you could probably change it to fit your needs. Doug

I don't think I want a steel one incase it rubs against the motor cowls. I may try putting a longer line on one of the nylon ones if it looks like I can easily undo/redo the end attach (I'm not very good at back-braiding lines).

I have the whole setup- Tube (with pump), tow rope and bridle, if you are interested.
Edit: I just noticed the length you were looking for. I would have to double check what I have.

Thanks but I have the tube and bridle from the old boat, just need a bridle now to get around the outboards.

I thought of that, have to look at one in person to see if I can slide the float (s) to one end.
