It took a bit to work out the details, but we are set now.
It works great and is legal in many states.

Sweet! We thought about doing that with two boats when I was a kid but never did.

That's awesome, but sooner you than me mate! I'm not sure that would be legal anywhere in Europe! Then again we do like our tight corners. :lol:
Perhaps you could build a Vera Cruise & cut out the one in the middle. :wink:

Planning a whole fleet, but starting with a Zip...I think.

The trip to the lake and back was flawless!

Triple towing is easier than I expected. I just made sure that I was very conscientious about safety, physics, and mechanics. I used the tow/haul setting on my automatic transmission and used both lower gears for starts and stops. My top speed was 62mph on the turnpike.

In other news: The boat ran awesome, and the action on the water was wonderful!
Great trip out!

I had no doubt in you or the boat!, or the boat design! Try to come to the Gathering!

My wife will be in Vegas that weekend with the girls.
I'd love to come--just a function of money really. I have a pretty expensive summer planned so far.

I doubt I'd triple tow it that far. Probably get a local room.

I really want to go though! I will make every effort. :D
