We haven't tubed in a couple of years. I'm the only driver, besides my 5 year old granddaughter, and the only one who knows how to ski, so that doesn't happen. Maybe in 5 years or so when she gets the urge to go tubing, we'll break it out again. I even took the ski tow off and put my teak flag staff there.
Everyone of my kids learned to ski behind our Hallett flat. There will always be a ski tow on that particular boat. Fact is, there was a time I looked down my nose at "boaters" who ride for the sake of burning fuel.
use to ski quite a bit, but as the bones get older and the heat beats down, I need to conserve energy just to sit and float in a covesphss
on a serious note, with the explosion of affordable High performance boats in the 90's, boating has seem to become more and more like your local car show, drive to the event/park-it/setup camp/B.S. for the day and go home, at least in Havasu I see the channel as no different then a car show on McCulloch, and the older I get the more boating is about the destination and the social gathering
We used to when I had the smaller boat, but this boat won't stay on plane slow enough to wake board behind. My son is 18 months old so in another 4 or 5 years I will but another boat to pull ski's, tubes, etc... Those are some of my best memories of Havasu, hitting the early glass.
Everyone skies, boards, kneeboards on our boats. My kids thank me every time, were at the water, that I pushed them into water sports. My son is trying to barefoot now, because I will brag on this one, because dad still does. I have came to the conclusion. To me it seems parents just don't want to take the time to teach them. They rather pull them on the tubes. Easier. Maybe I am wrong, but just don't see kids trying, like we use to.
