    towing jetboat

    we have a 59' stardust and have just purchased a 15' bayliner jazz we hope to tow behind the hb. i have just read some things about pinching a hose and other things i had no idea would need to be done.
    any tips here? i have seen jetski's loaded on rails on the back of hb, that looks like it might be easy, but don't know anything about this either, help!!

    I have read what you are talking about, but have never had a jet boat. I believe they are talking about the cooling feed hose - block it off while towing to keep from potentially flooding your engine or - if it were to pop off - your boat.

    Do a search on youtube to find a video that'll explain what you need to do to properly tow the jet boat. E.TN is right, you need to clamp-off a hose to prevent the water from being forced into the engine.
