Skiing behind a fishing boat has always been less troublesome for me than fishing out of a ski boat –
but neither experience ever provided any “best time of my life” memories.
If you’ve ever tried to add a homemade livewell, set-up a raised casting platform or install an electric trolling motor system on a ski boat, you know what I mean. Or maybe you’ve tried to safely attach a tow line to a fishing boat and provide comfortable seating for all the fun seekers awaiting their turn on the rope – again, you know what I mean.
