Q:Can this be used behind a jet ski?Asked on 8/8/2012 by Ted
Q:I have a 3 person airglide that tows in both directions. Problem I am having, when we try chariot style towing, air glide submarines. I feel this is due to the low hook up on our boat off of the swim platform it is very close to water line. Would this product fix the problem or do I need a different fix?Asked on 7/5/2012 by MT Pockets JR from Chain of Lakes Boater
A:Submerging towables are an issue of under inflation. This product will not solve the problem of a submarining towable. You need to do the inflation test to make sure that your towable is inflated fully. The test is that after you think it is fully inflated, you stand on it and if you sink farther than an inch, it is under infalted. Electric inflators usually fill a tube up to 85%-90% inflated. To get the other 10-15% you need to also use a hand or foot pump to finish inflating.Answered on 10/29/2012 by Justin M. from Overton's
A:This is a common problem with many different towables, and our suppliers have researched what causes the problem. It has nothing to do with where the tow point is surprisingly. All of our different towable suppliers have found that the problem is caused by under inflation of the towable. If you do not believe me call kwik tek or O'Brien and ask then for yourself.
If you inflate the towable to where you think it is full do this test. Stand on the towable and if you can push it down farther than an inch it is underinflated. Always finish inflating with a hand or foot pump, and get it as full of air as possible.Answered on 10/18/2012 by Justin M. from Overton's
Q:I am limited on space on my boat. Does this product inflate/deflate, or is it permanently the size of the dimensions provided?Asked on 6/15/2012 by Anonymous
Q:We have two circular tubes and the connection to the rope causes water to continuous splash into the eyes of the rider. I was looking at the Doable Booster Ball to lift the rope out of the water near the tube to eliminate this problem. Do you think this will work?Asked on 8/3/2011 by kh from Illinois
A:Nope ball is thirty foot from towable, will not stop splashing.Answered on 7/16/2012 by DIGG from Piney Flats TN.
Q:If storing a towable is it best to deflate completely or leave filled with air?Asked on 7/16/2010 by Hank from Nashville TN
A:Leave them inflated if you can afford the storage. Deflating adds the chance for stress points at crease corners when folding that can cause cracks. I know from experience. If you have to deflate, try rolling the product, rather than folding.Answered on 8/1/2011 by Big Al from Lake Gaston, NC
A:I leave mine inflated...I have plenty of room to store them.Answered on 6/11/2011 by tired granddad from on the lake
Q:If I want to purchase a second rope for the Booster, what length do I need?Asked on 7/12/2010 by E from Atlanta, GA
A:I would call Overton's customer service as I don't think you can add another rope. Your tube would be way to far behind the boat.Answered on 7/27/2011 by Loon Toon from Lake Wylie,SC
Q:How does this hook to the boat and the tube? does it have a rope hooked to it? Do i have to buy a seperate rope?Asked on 6/18/2010 by Sand from Michigan
A:There is a rope attached at both ends of the ball for you to attach to your tow-able and boat.Answered on 8/15/2011 by Fahking from Southwestern, Mi
Q:what's the towe rating for this product? I had a 3 person towabel, would it be cappable for it?Asked on 5/3/2010 by Anonymous
A:The description of it lists a 4,100-lb. break strength rope. The manufacturer states that the ball is designed for 1-4 person towables, so there shouldn't be a problem. I think it would depend somewhat, on the weight of the 3 persons riding it.Answered on 5/24/2010 by steveg from Ontario, NY
A:The tow rating marked on the box is 4100lbs and is designed for up to a 4 person towable. This shouldn't be a problem with a 3 person tube or water toy.Answered on 6/6/2010 by sgalante from Ontario, NY
Q:Is the rope bungee rope?Asked on 4/30/2010 by Bryan from Hutto,Tx
A:No it's not bungee! Its a tow rope friend.Answered on 7/15/2011 by BUTROSE from savannah, Ga
Q:My kids enjoy double tubing. Can this product be used for towing double tubes? Would I need 2 booster balls?Asked on 8/11/2009 by Brad from NH
A:We do not recommend ever towing two tubes at the same timeAnswered on 8/14/2009 by Ike from Overtons
A:Yes. That's just what I did. Works fine for one or two. For two towables, just order an extra rope and attach at the "ball" to the second towable. Keeps line out of the wake using the much stronger transom mount on my 4 Winns. Ball didn't show any problem with having two towables on it.Answered on 11/17/2009 by CR from Canyon Lake, TX
A:thats what I was planning to do but one person on this site pulls two tubes with one ball. The rope seems strong enough. But will the ball pull two double tubes. Does the Manufacture know the answer.Answered on 3/1/2010 by Crownline 260LS from Tulsa Ok.
