5 Steps to attatching a waterski and wakeboard rope to a boat

Water skiing is a favorite past time for many people! Whether you are watching from the boat, or participating in the activity its fun being around the people you love. What is better, then being out on the lake with the wind in your face, the cool water splashing up on you, or just touching up on your nice tan! However, many things can go wrong, you need to take the proper precautions to avoid dangerous situations. That is why I am going to help make sure you know how to attach a water ski rope to the boat! This is a simple process that doesn't take much time, but if done incorrectly could have dire consequences!

Step 1.

You are going to want to locate the metal tow ring, which can usually be found on the back of your boat. Test the tow ring several times, by pulling very hard, making sure that it is securely connected to your boat. Also the tow ring needs to have a curved piece on top to be able to hook your rope to.

Step 2.

Locate the loop on the end of your rope and carefully inspect your entire rope to make sure that it is safe. Now, grab the loop in one hand, and the rope in the other about a foot away from the loop.

Step 3.

In your hand opposite of the loop, double up the rope. Now, make a loop by holding the rope that is doubled, about 5-7 inches of loop sticking out. Next, feed the loop that you just made through the very first loop in the end of the tow rope.

Step 4.

Place the new loop into the tow ring located at the end of your boat, then place the end of the new loop over the top of the curved end.

Step 5.

Finally, hold your rope onto the curved end, with one hand, and pull firmly on the tow rope using your other hand, making sure that the loop is tightening around the metal tow ring.

This is a simple process, but if done incorrectly could have dire consequences! Remember to always take the time to test your rope and metal tow ring before each use. Now that you know how to attach a water ski rope to a boat, quit wasting your time indoors on the computer and get out there on that lake! Always remember safety first!
