I suppose there are many ways to do it, but I've always ran it through the eye, the around and over the hook facing forward.  When you turn the rope doesn't move in the eye. Makes a difference when pulling big tubes.

From Mastercraft boats

Gregg, that's what I tried to draw! LOL
Mike, I like that way it looks secure!

If that's how Mastercraft has it then I wonder how Glastron intended its use if theirs was facing the front

Mike's picture looks like a better way ..

The ski tow is listed as a option on some G/C's, except the Ski Machine, which came with ski tow.
So ski tow bar might have been installed by dealer who put it on in that way Maybe wrong ?

First two picture are from 1980 Glastron / Carlson Parts catalog in the " Optional Equipment " section.
Pictures of ski machine look like it's in the Mastercraft style / direction ..

Well were almost through winter and I haven't posted any updates lately! I've been working on running wires and installing the trim pump, blower, bilge etc. Nothing terribly exciting. I have loomed and added plugs to all the harnesses for extra protection and makes things easier to work on down the road. Trying to keep everything tucked out of the way as much as possible to give me lots of free space for storage under the sun pad. Also helps keep everything looking nice and neat and tidy.
Going to be working on the sun pads and getting the seats and sides back in next!

Good idea on battery and trim pump location! Opens up a ton of space.

Thanks! Trying to keep everything tucked away. There never seems to be enough storage space on boats!
