So there was no problem with too much wake for the tubes?

I never understood the bow rider concept. Seems dangerous to me. I've also never been married , glad I've never had either one!

My kids loved to ride in the front of the bow rider but I had to be real aware of the wakes. We boated on an inland river that the wind really didn't effect, cruiser wakes were the only concern. The few times we were out in "big" water (2-3 footers) the kids thought the front was fun for a few minutes but then it got old and they moved to the back.

We both like the cuddy set up, we can put the kids down for a nap or just get out of the sun. I like the powerquest by the way. Good luck.
