It does sound like fun but I am not going para-sailing in a Poker Run. Something about me in the air ( not that I don't trust R's driving) and monster boat at max speed!!!! Air in the boat is just fine by me...

I will look in the parts though Thanks

P.S. If you try it let us know how it went and send us pictures!!!!

Rforsey,

We have a Para Sail that we use sometimes, purchased it around 1991, it is a "Sky Walker"??

Did you say behind a jetski??? HA HA HA, I have never seen it done but would like to see someone try. Seriously, we use a inboard skiboat w/ V drive and 300hp, Plus reinforced fiberglass where rope attaches, and it pulls the boat pretty hard, its like flying its not the take off you worry about its the landing and you need the extra HP and pull if you get close to say, sail boats, bridges, trees,powerlines, also as you use it you will find that their are allot of crosswinds that can really pull the boat, I would easily say a good crosswind would pick up a jetski and all hell would break loose.

Good luck

WILL

we were watching it being attempted and the the person never did get off the ground so our Crazy ass friend is looking to see if it can be done.. they couldn't get the Para sail to open. we thought maybe they made one just for a Jet Ski. R was concerned about it lifting the Jet ski up out of the water.. but we were willing to let him go first... We will send you Pictures

Wanted willing Jet ski Driver... Brains not required

Also, check your insurance policy. Mine specifically prohibits it.
