With the low freeboard on the boomerang, is it possibly to even hang a barefoot boom off the side? Maybe a larger boat would be a better fit....maybe. I was only talking about using the rear ski hook for casual skiing and tubing. I ski very hard, never had a chance to use a course, but have been told I am ready for it. So when I ski it's always with the bear minimum of people/weight in the boat. Now I seen the gekko gts 20 too! Wow, sexy! I only have $9k saved and "sold" my pontoon for 2500 but the guy can't pay me till his tax return comes. So can't do a lot right now as far as the more expensive boats go. Also have my Larson xl-5 for sale. We shall see.
