I towed a pickup truck with my Spec V once. Not very far, but I did it

Crashed, abused, loved. Damn thing just won't give up.

Perhaps one needs to provide definitions to the terms pulling versus towing. They are not the same thing.

Both involve a very heavy deadweight attached to the *** end of the vehicle.

you may get the skidoo to the body of water but like others have said, The boat ramp will kill you.

1. Its wet. you will spin.

2. A submerged trailer with a seadoo on it is alot harder to pull up an incline than when its bonedry.

3. Incline on the boat ramp is not your friend.

I still like my sentra....

Judging by HP, you should use the jetski to tow your sentra!

My dad had a 16' Boat that he used to pull with an '86 grand am (manual)

I'm sure that boat weighed more than 1k lbs. and that grandam had no power at all
