looking to tow my SEADOO'S to cat for a multi-day stay. i've never done this before. my plan is to tow them in line, one behind the other. and drag a peice of chain or something behind the last one. am i on the right track?

We just drive them over and back. Easiest way to do it. Please it keeps the kids busy for the run over and home....

If you do tow them - you are on the right track - mouse tail a short rope and about a 6-8ft chain with a weight at the end. Don't have pic of my set-up but you can easily throw one together

towing them will limit your speed, slow boat no problem. also if in rough seas they can get swapped

Check to see if your model can be towed without having water forced through exhaust into cylinders.
first off thanks to those that helped, do appreciate it. and yes, i found in the manual that 13 mph is top speed for them being towed, any more risks the possibility of flooding the engine. i did buy these hose pinchers....
to pinch off the offending hose. with these speed is no longer a issue for flooding the motor. weather and work dependant, we may find out next weekend.:-)
